Author Michael Rosen inspires teachersPosted: 3rd April 2019
Children’s author Michael Rosen inspired a school to develop tomorrow’s performance poets.
The writer behind children’s favourite We’re Going on A Bear Hunt recently held a training session with teachers from the BMAT group of schools.
Those from Little Parndon Primary Academy were so inspired, they invited parents in to watch children perform poems.
Kirstie Clark, co-head of school, said: “Off the back of working with Michael Rosen, we decided to invite parents in to watch children recite poetry. This was a nice way to share Michael Rosen’s poetry and to get parents interacting with the school.
“The training session was a real confidence boost for our teachers and we felt it would be brilliant for our children to perform in the same way he does. Michael makes poetry so exciting and we wanted our parents to see that.”
