Leo, in Y3, has been involved in a 4 week after school poetry workshop with Grimm & Co: Poetry and Me programme.
Spoken Word Power is a new, funded project supporting children and young people around the nation to creatively champion the spoken word, nurturing positive attitudes to language and learning and providing a platform for the vibrant voices of a new generation of young people. This year’s Spoken Word Power theme was Speaking My Truth.
Leo wrote his own poem and was invited to perform at Rotherham Civic Theatre!
I come from – Leo
I come from the fiery heart of a volcano
I come from swinging through the trees with lemurs
I come from the pages of a book about dragons
I come from a trip to Blue Stone
I come from the Core of Light
I come from chicken dippers and fluffy pancakes
I come from Grimm & Co with magical beings
I come from poetry and haikus and magical potatoes
I come from playing with friends
I come from origins of lions
I am shouting at the top of my roar
This is my truth.
