A group of Year 10 students were lucky enough to take part in a celestial poetry evening last Thursday hosted by our English Department, as part of their Hidden Figures cross curricular study. The evening featured poetry readings, inspiration from the night sky, fairy lights, stars of every shape and colour you can imagine, creative poetry writing activities, pizza, hot chocolate and marshmallows toasted over open fires! The whole event was a delight from start to finish and the poetry that was crafted was of a very high standard - and adorned with stars, of course! A very BIG thank you to the English Department for a truly amazing evening.
And if writing poetry is your thing, why not head along to the Writing Group on a Wednesday lunch time. They are running some poetry activities this week for National Poetry Day and meet each week to share their writing and ideas. (See Mrs Montgomerie for more details if you're interested)
