6th Form helpers and Mrs Vyse with Dreadlock Alien
Thanks to poets Dreadlock Alien and Matt Windle for a fantastic day when they visited to lead a creative slam poetry day. All Year 7 students took part, and after seeing Matt and Dreadlock perform they were inspired to create their own poem on the theme of diversity, with the best groups going forward to a battle for first place. I suppose you could call it a “poem off”. Dreadlock wowed the audience with his inventive rhymes, quick wit and verbal dexterity.
Students selected a poem from each House group to go through to the final, with supporters using their creativity and artistic skills to make banners supporting their House.
The Final groups taking part in the slam were:
1 Pot of Gold
2 Translam Diversity
3 Master Piece of Change
4 Dictionary Dabblers
5 The Right Way – Not the Left
6 Different Divas
8 Diversity 6
9 Rocker Dudes
10 Diversity Danger
