This year all Year 7 are completing a Spoken English diploma which includes them having to recite poetry from memory, read a text aloud and deliver a presentation.  As part of their preparation for learning a poem off by heart, the students have been playing lots of memory games and using music and percussion instruments to help them remember the rhythm of the poem they are studying. 

The poem we have chosen to do is The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear.   The students had a lot of fun but at the same time learnt news skills.
