POETRY SLAM 2016
On 14 June, two of our Year 6 children attended this year's Poetry Slam at Dillington Hall. Jacob Partridge, the Key Stage 2 winner of the Somerset Literacy Network poetry competition with his poem entitled 'The Barn Owl', was awarded his prizes (a framed copy of his poem and a poetry book), and was given the opportunity to read his poem to an audience. Ben Martin, whose poem was highly commended in the competition, also attended the event. The afternoon consisted of an excellent poetry workshop and several performances of well-known poems. It was a highly inspirational afternoon.
