This academic year  Midfield have really embraced a poetry culture within our Literacy lessons. From Early Years through to Year 6 all children have had the opportunity to learn poems off by heart, create performance poetry and to become young poets. 

Poetry is key to allowing children to develop their speaking and listening skills, embrace emotional resilience and become star performers with a range of expressive voices. 

After children's poet James Carter visited our school, every year group had a go at writing their own poems.
