Poetry in Performance

Our Year 7s take their performances to Lytham Church of England School

During the early March, a small group of Year 7 pupils, accompanied by Mr. Bridges, took their varied and entertaining poetry recitals performed at the ‘Poetry by Heart’ House Competition into the local community, paying a visit to Year 5 at Lytham Church of England primary school.

Working with their poems as a stimulus, the Year 7 pupils led a drama workshop, freeze-framing key moments from Roald Dahl’s ‘The Pig’, whilst the Year 5 audience were also treated to perfectly delivered versions of ‘Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf’ from Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’, ‘The Way Through the Woods’ by Rudyard Kipling and ‘Sea Fever’ by John Masefield.

Every credit must go to the Year 7 leaders of these days away from the AKS classroom – their willingness to take the reins and lead was noted on more than one occasion, as was their confidence, enthusiasm and ability to communicate with the younger pupils.
