On Monday 13th June, the whole of Year 7 participated in a poetry slam with a focus on British values. The hosts, Spoz and Dreadlock Alien, encouraged students to develop a new passion for poetry whilst exploring their personal views on what makes us British.
All students created fantastic poems within groups and then performed these to the rest of the year group. The staff supporting the event decided which four groups should go to the final and these groups then battled to win the poetry slam title for 2016. Congratulations goes to the winning team, ‘Simile Mandems’, and to all Year 7 students for their exemplary behaviour and attitude on the day.
We would like to thank the Appeal Trust for awarding money towards this event.
