Y6 visit to Crucial Crew
On Friday 6th October 2017, we were lucky enough to be joined by Andy Tooze, ‘The Poet from the Peaks’. He read some of his own poems, led workshops with every class and signed copies of his book ‘The Poetry Bug’. It was an amazing day and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience; they showed a real enthusiasm for listening to, reciting and writing poetry.
In Foundation and Year 1/2, Andy supported the children to write whole class poems entitled ‘Ourselves’ and ‘Superheroes’. The children in Y1/2 became illustrators for one of his poems and the winner received a free copy of Andy’s book. In Key Stage 2, he shared his ‘top tips’ for writing poetry and the children composed their own poems about animals in Y3/4 and body parts in Y5/6.
Andy loved his time at Shortbrook and we hope to book a return visit in the future.
‘The pupils were so engaged with their education. It was truly inspirational to spend a day in such a wonderful environment with staff who exemplify the very best of their profession.’ Andy Tooze
