Keen Writers, February 2019Posted on 26/02/2019
On Wednesday I had the pleasure of taking 6 enthusiastic writers (D’Anton, Lottie W, Lauren, Felix, Elliot G, Karolina) from Year 5 and 6 to Aldwickbury School to be inspired by the work of Fred Sedgwick. Fred Sedgwick writes and draws upon thought provoking poetry across a range of subjects. The children were made to think carefully about their language choice and encouraged to include tiny details to enhance their poetry and make it sing from the page.
The children composed some emotion pieces of poetry for their loved ones. They had to choose a special person in their life and a subject they knew a lot about and intertwine the two. There wasn’t a dry eye left in the room!
