Over the last three weeks, we have been delighted that Scarlett Brunning, a former pupil and a keen poet, has returned to Blue Coat to run a series of poetry workshops with some of our Year 4 children.

During the three sessions, the children learned about different types of poetic language and techniques, such as stanzas, metre, feet, enjambment and caesura. They revised different styles of forms of figurative language, such as similes, metaphors and alliteration, and then challenged themselves to identify and use pathetic fallacy and personification. They also participated in a treasure hunt around the classroom.

We would like to thank Scarlett for her energy and enthusiasm and for coming and for teaching us so much.
