Student Success at Ipswich Poetry Feast

​Marcus receives his award
Congratulations to Marcus H of Class 5-6 F1 who received a Highly Commended Certificate for his efforts.
Students from 5/6 F1 took an opportunity to extend their writing by creating poems for the Ipswich Poetry Feast. The Ipswich Poetry Feast is an international poetry writing competition. It is an initiative of the Ipswich City Council to promote the writing and reading of poetry.
As part of the preparation the students participated in a web conference with Meredith Costain, a renown poet who talked about her own poetry writing and gave students techniques and ideas on how to create their own poems. The students used these ideas to experiment with writing different poems in literacy groups.
