Poetry Club – Year 6
Year Six Poetry Club meets each week to simply write poetry. Those who attend share a deep love of poetry and have already had some experience of writing.  Each week we decide what the theme of the week will be – and then we write a poem, sharing our efforts at the end of the session.  Sometimes we suggest possible changes to improve the work, but usually we just voice our appreciation of what has been produced.  It is a relaxed but quiet half an hour intended for those who love to write poetry.
