Poet-in Residence, James Carter, is the highlight of English Focus Week

James Carter, Poet-in-Residence visited Ardingly Prep during our English Focus Week and used poetry to inspire pupils, with the help of his molodica, Steve!

His visit started with a highly entertaining whole-school assembly on the Monday morning where we were treated to a lively recitation of some of his poems accompanied by some pretty fancy guitar playing! This was followed over the next two days by an extensive series of poetry writing workshops with the children across the year groups and even a fun interactive evening session on the Monday night for families. 

It is hoped to collate all the children’s poems into class booklets
