SLAM POET VISITS ARK JOHN KEATS

As part of the Drama unit of work on Performance Poetry, Kenny Baraka, spoken word artist, and lyricist, led workshops with both year 7 and year 8 pupils on lyric writing and how to perform on stage. The results were fantastic, with around a dozen pupils from each workshop performing in an assembly in front of their peers. Kenny was a real inspiration, performing his own poems about how reading helps you to achieve your dreams. A great message from a great performer. The school is looking forward to the inter-class poetry slams at the end of this Drama unit of work.
