It was National Poetry Day on Thursday 7th of October. Katherine Warington students were keen to celebrate. The theme this year was ‘Choice’ and students explored this in form time on Thursday through Caleb Femi’s poem ‘Thirteen.’ Students were quick to discuss choice and it led to some interesting discussions about fate and free will.
We also held a Read Aloud Poetry Competition which encouraged students to perform a poem to their peers. We had a number of entries yet Sofia D and Liana N stole the show and won the competition! Well done to both of these students for writing their own poetry and engaging an audience with their voice and ideas.
The English Department would like to draw your attention to our annual Haunting Story Competition for Halloween. Students can submit their entry to their English Teacher on Google Classroom, or by email for the chance to win book vouchers and mega-house points. The spookier the better! Here is an amazing creepy story to get you in the mood from Neomi Yearwood, in Year 9.
