Poetry Live

On 2 December Y10 and Y11 English students who are studying a  poetry anthology on either ‘Love and Relationships’ or ‘Power and Conflict’ went to see ‘Poetry Live’ at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, where  the featured poets  were on stage to read their poems live and take questions.   Students were then given handy tips and advice on the best way to approach their GCSE examinations, by one of the chief AQA examiners.   It is a brilliant way of bringing the poems to life which enriches the teaching the students have already received.
