Internationally renowned poet and lecturer Bob Beagrie recently visited us at Lord Lawson Academy. The aim of the visit was to encourage our students to think creatively about how they use words to convey messages, stories and feelings. A group of thirty-one year 8 students participated in the poet led workshop exploring different forms of poetry including kennings and list poems. They were given the time to craft their poems and to perform these to other members of the group. Bob really did inspire the students to create some memorable pieces, some of which can be read below.
