Working with up to 420 children to create and perform a School Poem in just one day!

 

"Each class thoroughly enjoyed the poetry workshops and enjoyed taking an active role in order to create their ideas. Using drama to create an orchestra of sounds for our soundscape poems was fantastic to see and I know that we plan to use this strategy with the children again! Thank you for inspiring the children, so they could create such wonderful ideas!" Windsor Primary School

A Celebration in Rhyme helps celebrate the stories your pupils love in verse - by writing and performing a collaborative School Poem in just a single day! After a quick assembly sharing our love of poetry and issuing the overall challenge, children will participate in collaborative writing workshops, usually for a year group at a time. Using our unique “RunAround” methodology, KS2 / P4 - P7 classes will choose the themes and content, creating the lines as they go - with EYFS and KS1 / P1 - P3 providing the chorus. And the outcome? A beautifully crafted poem extolling the wonder of stories that’s unique to your school - and that will get its very first performance at a second, celebratory assembly at the end of the day!

"The girls at Glendower LOVED the workshops! - they enjoyed the workshops immensely and thought the facilitator was fantastic! - they gained confidence around poetry, in addition to understanding the freedom attached to the concept of creating their own poem. We can’t wait to have you back!" Glendower Prep School

"All children enjoyed the session and were engaged and included. The children enjoyed linking the poem to texts they were familiar with. The workshop leader was very engaging and the children responded well to her. We loved coming together at the end of the day to share and listen to each poem. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and the poem supported our prior learning." Bridgewater Primary School

"All year groups really enjoyed the practical elements of the workshops and being able to discuss their favourite books, authors and characters. Children were able to recap on their knowledge of poetry and rhyming couplets as well as celebrating the joy of reading. Thank you very much!" Celebrations in Rhyme Poetry Workshop, St Mary & St John Catholic Primary School
