Rhyme is the word as South Mill Arts hosts Windhill21 Primary School poetry festival
Spoken-word poet Tomos Roberts, better known as Tomfoolery, was at South Mill Arts to watch inspiring poetic performances by pupils from Windhill21.
Eight Key Stage 2 classes from the Scott Road primary school took part in the poetry festival, which saw a range of emotive and whimsical poems performed, from the works of civil rights activist Maya Angelou to children's author Roald Dahl.
The spectacular event involved the children performing in a range of styles, with pupils acting, chanting and moving around, whilst others stood rooted to the spot and delivered their powerful, emotive messages.
Teachers also took to the stage, with head of school Sarah Wood and executive head Philippa Moore, to perform an outstanding and very funny rendition of the poem Gran, Can You Rap? by Jack Ousby.
Mrs Wood said: "The impact of this festival has threaded throughout the school, with the obvious factor that it was great fun and the children have clearly found a love of poetry and performing."
After the performances, Tomfoolery took to the stage to deliver some of his own work – including a wonderfully humorous piece about Windhill21 – and then ran some fantastic workshops back at school for Year 5 children.
