Year 5 Primary Workshop - English
Year 5 students from a number of local primary schools joined the English Department for a truly interactive poetry session. The girls were invited to group words together from the Interactive White Board to link to themes, sounds, colours, textures; they were then asked to use the magnetic word selection, and their own words, to construct lines of poetry; finally, following their group or individual poetry writing, they recited their contributions to the rest of the class.
The girls were fantastic. They were enthusiastic, engaging and very creative. Poems that were funny, thoughtful and expertly crafted were performed professionally, with little rehearsal. The students were enthralling and delightful company and the English Department thoroughly enjoyed the session.
Thank you to Mrs Hutton and her team for making this such an enjoyable workshop.
