Bland Poetry Visit Anything But Dull!

Monday, 1st July 2019

On Monday 1st July, the whole school enjoyed a visit from entertaining poet Ian Bland. Mr Bland involved the teaching staff and pupils in an action-filled, lively rendition of his own poems that offered a hilarious interpretation of the joys of school life. A former primary teacher himself, Mr Bland captivated his audience and encouraged each year group to take part in a morning of poetry writing using alliteration, rhymes and fun. At the end of the day, the school gathered together again, to perform from a selection of wonderful poetry, fresh from inspired young minds!
