Poet in School

Poet visits North Walsham Junior School


Poet David Mason visited our school on Thursday, 28th November.  

We all enjoyed an assembly where the poet performed a range of his poetry and then took questions from the children.  They asked some probing questions:  'What inspired you to be a poet?'  'Which of your poems is your favourite?'  'What do you have to do to become a poet?'  


Year 4 children then had workshops with David exploring words and imagery through drama.  Back in the classroom, children experimented with a range of different poetic forms:  haiku, shape, kennings and nonsense poems.  It was great to have the opportunity to play with language and collaborate with each other.
