Poetry at the Library

Yesterday saw the second of my three visits to the Library. This time it was a group of 9 year olds from my local Primary School who were having a morning at the Library. The local Poetry Group, of which I am a member, had been invited to do some poetry work with the children and five of us went along. We shared some poetry with them on a variety of topics and listened to them read some of their own poems which they had been working on at school – acrostic poems on the subject of ‘Future’. They had obviously put a lot of thought into their poems and achieved some good results.  We also talked to them in general terms about poetry and they were happy to share their thoughts with us on the kind of poems that they like.

I have also received some wonderful ‘Monster’ pictures from my previous visit when I read to a class of  6-7 year olds and I will choose a few to post on this website in a day or two.
