Did you know it is National Poetry Day on Thursday 6th October?
During my assembly today, I shared with you all one of my favourite poets of all time, Michael Rosen. I absolutely love how he brings his poetry to life, and shares with the audience his own experiences of childhood. The children in Year 3 White love him too, and they expressed their own opinions about his work:
‘I love Michael Rosen because he shows confident body language’ – Humzah
‘I love the poem ‘Chocolate Cake!’ – Anora
‘I think Michael Rosen is really funny’ – Zuzannah
