This year we have one online FREE live poetry workshop with Mark Grist aimed at 6-12 year-olds.
When: Tuesday 19th September 2023 at 9.30am to 10.20am
Where: Via Teams
The workshop will help your pupils write their "This Is Me" recipe poems. They'll learn the structure of a recipe poem, how to include metaphors, connectives, prepositions and onomatopoeia, as well as touch on rhyme, before writing their own recipe poems.
Mark will have an 8-line model poem to guide your pupils as well as an extension activity & differentiation options so you can get all your pupils involved & excited about poetry writing.
The video will also be available as a recording from 20th September to the 31st October 2023 on the Young Writers YouTube channel.
