The Second Sir Edmund Hillary Poetry Slam
We knew we needed something to celebrate our first term back and what better than working together on learning a poem and entering the Poetry Slam. We are so glad we did- it gives the children a chance to show off what good learners and performers they are. Use the fullscreen square button in the media player to see the videos enlarged.
Why don't you give learning a poem a try- some handy hints at the foot of the page.
