Au­thor helps pupils with their po­etry

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Schoolchil­dren flexed their cre­ative mus­cles last week in a po­etry work­shop.

More than 200 as­pir­ing word­smiths from Sut­ton Va­lence Pri­mary School took part in the class run by au­thor Brian Moses last Tues­day.

The au­thor spoke about his own writ­ing, and taught the pupils about dif­fer­ent forms of po­etry, as well as help­ing them to write their own pieces.

They were then given the chance to read their work to the school in front of the assem­bly.

So­phie Glewis, English co­or­di­na­tor at the North Street school, said: “The chil­dren really en­joyed the work­shop, and we’re hop­ing to do more sim­i­lar ses­sions in the fu­ture.”
