'A Poem for Suffolk' Workshop with Dean Parkin.

On Wednesday, Years 4, 5 and 6 were fortunate to receive a visit from Poet Dean Parkin. His current project is 'A poem for Suffolk', and as part of this, Dean visits Suffolk schools and works with children to ask for their help to write the ultimate poem for Suffolk, which encompasses all of the things we love about our local area.

The children had a fabulous day and thoroughly enjoyed the creative opportunity.
The day ended with the children reading their poems to the rest of KS2 and then a poetry reading from Dean.  Needless to say, the children developed a new-found love of bubblewrap!

Thank you Dean for a fabulous experience.
