Poetry Slam 2018

On Tuesday 11th December, we held our very first ever Poetry Slam. Each child in the school learnt, rehearsed and practised a poem of their choice which they performed in front of their class. Each class democratically chose the winner to represent them in the ‘Slam’. The children performed so well (along with some of our teachers), making sure to include intonation, pauses, movements and facial expressions. We had an absolutely fantastic time and we are already thinking about next years event!

Congratulations to

William and Aahil – Joint 3rd place
Sadia – 2nd place
Ruby – 1st place Winner

This poem was written by Zahir after the poetry slam. Well done Zahir!

The poetry slam poem

By Abdul Zahir


The poem’s were weird, at some points they were cool.

I think someone made one about kicking a ball..?


A group of kids… scared by a ghost…

I think for a sequel, they might want to boast…


The poetry slam – it was cool -  it was epic!!

My poem, was going to be, about an ancient relic?!


The poem I actually read was ‘Our Teacher Likes Minecraft’, by Kenn Nesbitt.

Though I thought, in that poem, would the teacher, after buying Minecraft, would she have any more money in her debit?


I made this poem after the poetry slam
