Here at Totley Primary School

We think poetry is so cool

Keep to the beat with rhythm and rhyme

(Actually free verse is just fine)

 

So to celebrate National poetry day

We’ve put our pencils and pens away

To Drop Everything And Read the ideas

Of our finest poetry pioneers!

 

On Thursday 2nd October, all of our children enjoyed a Drop Everything and Read Session to make the most of National Poetry Day. Activities included listening to the performances of acclaimed poets such as Benjamin Zephaniah, reading each other’s poems and putting on whole class poetry performances. Here are a few photos from the day!
