National Poetry DayPosted: 19th October 2018
The school day had a new rhythm to it on National Poetry Day.
Every lesson in all subjects for Year 7 and 8 at Epping St John’s School had a poetry element to it on the themed day.
Students took part in poetry themes lessons in art, food, French, geography, history, maths, Spanish and science.
Jennifer Dennison, lead practitioner for English across BMAT schools, said: “Students in Year 7 and 8 have worked incredibly hard to bring poetry to life across the curriculum. Particularly impressive work was produced in languages and science.”
Executive head Stephen Hehir said: “It is so important that students develop a love of poetry from an early age and have opportunities to explore this through a range of lessons. Poetry is not simply the domain of English!
“Well done to all Epping St John’s students and staff who took part in this poetry themed day.”
