Poetry Slam

By 10 July 2020June 2nd, 2021No Comments


This week students from Years 7 to 10 took part in a Poetry Slam as part of the Sharples Virtual Arts Festival. Students worked on their poems individually and worked on pointers and suggestions from both Mr Hesford and Miss Ayub. Year 7 and 8 were both tasked with writing on the theme of ‘Lockdown’ and reflecting on this time in history. Year 9 and 10 looked at the theme of ‘Social Injustice’ and worked incredibly hard to bring to light important social issues that surround us during this time. 

The students performed exceptionally well with praises from the audience, judges and also the professional poet: Louise Fazackerly (pictured right on a video chat with Miss Dann)! Once again the pupils at Sharples made us all incredibly proud and have shown that they are all brilliant!
