Wycliffe Prep School enjoyed another fun-packed poetry week in November, with pupils from Reception to Year 8 enjoying a range of poetic activities across all subjects. Upper Prep pupils were shocked to find themselves even studying poetry in their Maths lessons, as they estimated the approximate age of a poem’s target audience by calculating the average word lengths in a poem – well done, Mr Gaunt!

Year 8 studied War Poetry, as part of their cross-curricular work on WWI in English and History, and Charlie Hosking and Jasmine Smith were honoured to read their own remembrance poems at the Prep School Remembrance Service on 10th November.

The highlight of the week was a visit from the highly acclaimed performance poet, Paul Lyalls, who gave energetic performances to Reception – Year 2 and Years 3 – 5 respectively, before leading an ambitious and hugely successful poetry workshop with Years 6 – 8.

A record-breaking number of entries was also received by the library for their poetry week competition; to write a twenty word poem as a ‘message to the world’.  The runners up for the competition were Bella Williams and Livvie Rathbone, for their joint poem, and Alyssa Powell, who each received a certificate, and the winner was Clara Skelston, who won a beautiful book of poems. The winning poems are on display in the library.
