This term, a group of students from Years 8 and 10 wrote poetry based on the theme of Freedom.
The task encouraged self-expression and was a creative means for students to explore their views and opinions of what Freedom is and what it means to them. Some of the interpretations included: Bullying, Animal rights, Stereotypes, Freedom of speech, Dance, Identity, Truth and Confinement. Students effectively used a range of poetic devices and language features to present their ideas and created fantastic poems.
The poems were submitted to the Young Writers national competition, ‘The Poetry Games’ and 21 students had their work published in the Devon & Cornwall Anthology. Well done to everyone involved!
