This course, led by professional poet Rosemary Harris, gives staff an extensive toolkit through which to work confidently and creatively with poetry and spoken word with their classes. The course looks at a variety of different forms of poetry and includes a chance to see a performance of a poetry show at Half Moon.

Feedback from teachers at previous Drama and Poetry CPD sessions:

  • So enjoyable and inspiring all activities were great and child-friendly and fun. It was great that it was led by such a successful and talented poet.
  • It was great to see poetry in performance and experience a range of poem types.
  • Great ideas on how to involve and interest children in poetry and drama, and how to organise a poetry/English lesson in a way to make it fun and interesting for all ages.
