To celebrate National Poetry Day on 4th October 2019 all year 7 students took part in a special library lesson. This year’s theme was ‘Truth’ and students enjoyed finding out about truth poems and poets as well as discovering some unusual truths (and lies!) about their fellow students.
In addition to the library activities, we were delighted to welcome Keisha-Louise Sparks as our visiting poet. Keisha-Louise is a former student of Tor Bridge High and has recently had her first collection of poetry published.
During workshops to students in years 7, 8 and 10 she performed some of her poems and supporting the students to produce their own poetry. Keisha-Louise talked with our students about her inspiration behind her poetry and encouraged them to open up and write truth poems about themselves.
We can’t wait to read the student entries to this year’s competition. The truth is, we have some budding poets!!
