Pupils Embrace their Inner Poet
Published on: Thursday, October 17, 2019
We love poetry here at King’s Hall and, as part of our school-wide celebrations of National Poetry Day earlier this month, pupils from Years 3 to 8 (and some staff too) embraced their inner poet, creating their own blackout poems using a specially chosen page from a story. The brief was simple: choose words from the page to form the poem and colour in the rest so that only your poem remains. As ever, our creative community did not disappoint!
This year's winners were Sam in Year 3, Alice in Year 4, Natasha in Year 5, Georgia in Year 6, Arabella, Sam and Noah in Year 7 and Elliott in Year 8. Our staff winner was Madame Murray (regaining her title as King’s Hall Poet in Residence!) and the overall winner was Leigha in Year 7 whose powerful and visually stunning poem really impressed Mrs M.
