Cedar’s Poetry Slam With Poet John Stammers
Pupils of Cedar competed in a Poetry Slam in today’s assembly.
Cedar read out a selection of their own writings, poems and limericks. The slam was overseen by visiting poet Mr John Stammers, winner of the 2001 Forward Prize.
The Poetry Slam brings to life Cedar’s Literacy curriculum. Earlier this week Poet John Stammers led the class in a poetry workshop afternoon. John and Cedar have been discussing poetry, learning by heart, nonsense poetry and the sound of poetry.
Congratulations to all of our Cedar pupils for their amazing poems. A special mention to our overall winners of the Poetry Slam, Aaron O, Henry M and in first place, Cameron R.
