Poet Andy Tooze

Last Friday, Andy Tooze, a specialist poetry teacher, visited Chaucer Primary School.

From Year 2 onwards, the children wrote their own poem linked to a given theme such as animals or family and friends. Children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 took part in a performance poetry session. The day finished with an assembly, where children from each year group read their own poem aloud and year groups performed poems together.

The day was a great success and it was lovely to see the children so enthused about poetry!
