“Excellent! Inclusive and enthusing! I was amazed at the depth and quality that the students produced.”

Poetry Slam Championship Day is a performance poetry workshop for KS2, KS3 or KS4 pupils. Designed to engage larger groups (delivery can be divided into morning or afternoon sessions for up to 75 participants in each) pupils are introduced to slam poetry and the idea that poetry plays a large part in popular culture. Working in teams, pupils write, perform and compete against each other in ‘rhyme battles’ on popular themes such as identity, crime, transition, anti-bullying – or subject topics such as Romeo and Juliet or Volcanoes.

The day ends in an celebratory showcase, in which teachers become judges and the whole school can be invited to watch.
