Andy Tooze - The Poet from the Peaks
Everyone was very excited to welcome Andy Tooze – ‘The Poet from the Peaks’ to school on Friday 12th January 2018.
Andy, a published poet and specialist poetry teacher, led an assembly to share some of his poems and then worked with each class to write and perform their own poetry. We ended the day with a sharing assembly where each class shared some of their work. The poems ranged from Weather Word Poems and Tongue-Twisters to ‘20 word poems,’ and everyone had great fun performing them. You can see a selection of the poems displayed by the school library.
Pictures from the day can be found in the Photo Gallery.
