Local author and poet, John Hughes from ‘The Windows Project’ visited Clifford Holroyde today to complete a series of creative writing workshops. John worked with Classes 2, 3, 4 and 6. Each class were fully engaged in the sessions and really enjoyed putting their ideas forward. They created some lyrics, short stories and poems. John was impressed with how the students participated in each of his sessions.
Today class 3 were visited by local poet, Ged Thompson. Ged led a poetry workshop in which the students were totally engaged and pupils produced their own poem. The boys acted in a very responsible way when discussing the mature topics and themes. Ged and the students really enjoyed the session and it has certainly wetted the appetite for more poetry at Clifford Holroyde.
We are really looking forward to having an amazing local poet, author and storyteller; Ged Thompson, who has very kindly agreed to come in to perform some poems and talk about poetry with one of our English classes on Wednesday 15th November.
Ged will have some copies of his collection of fairytales ‘Middle Earth Magic’ for sale @ £10 a copy, if any of the pupils might like one. Thanks, Mr McGilton You can follow Ged’s page, Middle Earth Magic
