CLPE poetry award

Each year poetry for children is celebrated by the CLPE Poetry Award. Poetry books published in the previous year are considered for the award. This year, students at Johanna Primary School and Walnut Tree Walk Primary School are working with the poet Adisa to explore some of these books, and create their own poetry. Here's what they have to say...

We recorded our workshops with Adisa, our interviews with Tony Mitton, and our poems. We also interviewed Michael Rosen about himself and his poems, and asked Miriam about the Poetry Library. We learned how to use the recording equipment and how to edit the recordings on a computer with Sarah, Julia, Abigail and Sarah from Lambeth CLC. You can listen to the results here.
