Poetry Workshop with Mr Moss

More Able Poetry Workshop

On Friday 9th March, Mr Moss (a grandparent of two of the pupils at Talavera Junior) visited our school to deliver a more able poetry workshop. Working with year 5 and 6 pupils, Mr Moss showed a selection of his published works and talked about the inspirations for his poems. Using the poem ‘Dark and Gloomy’ as a stimulus, the children then created their own poems which contained elements of both tension and humour. Each child created a creative and witty poem which they were incredibly proud to share. Thank you Mr Moss for your time and for such a delightful afternoon- we hope that you will come back to Talavera again soon to share more of your wonderful collection.
