Weekly Focused Assemblies 2023-2024

In Our assembly this week, we talked about World Poetry Day.

We talked about why celebrating poetry is so important. We decided that poetry should be celebrated because:

  • It allows us to experiment with words, rhythm and rhyme
  • They allow us to express ourselves and our feelings
  • They can be very entertaining

We then read and enjoyed the following book which is an actual poem.

We then listened to some of our own Rednal Hill poets from year 3, 4, 5 & 6. These children had all written their own poems inspired by poets that they had been exploring during poetry week. The poets are:

Year 3 – Michael Rosen

Year 4 – Valerie Bloom

Year 5 – Kate Wakeling

Year 6 – Benjamin Zephaniah

A poetry competition was then launched for anyone inspired to write a poem!

At the start and end of our assembly we listened to Vivaldi – Four Seasons. Take a listen here:
