Poets in the Making
Ripley Court were joined by a very special visitor, poet and writer Ash Dickinson.
Ash ran poetry workshops in which the pupils were set fun poetry exercises. The pupils worked on their own or in pairs to write poems and they then read them out to the group.
Ash also read some of his own work including a wonderful poem called ‘Commuting to Jupiter’ which tells the story of a little girl who takes the moon to a party as her guest.
The pupils and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the day and we would like to than Ash very much for his visit.
