Kahlo Class engaged in a super exciting poetry workshop during the first half of the spring term. In January, we were visited by the amazing Joelle Taylor, who created Slambassadors in order to inspire children to write poetry.

Everyone in our class was inspired that day, and Joelle returned to work with a group of children to create a poem on the theme of ‘Identity’.

Sumaya, Madiha, Uzma, Zain, Hamida and Thazkiyra

In addition, our solo performer Zian wrote a beautiful poem about her ‘lion’ who looks after her.
