Poetry with Jac Bottjer

On Friday the 16th of March, Year 5 took part in a workshop with Essex performing poet Jac Bottjer. They each wrote a poem about a troll, with use of various poetic language – including similes, metaphors, expanding metaphors and abstract description.

The final description of the poem likened this giant troll to a problem that each of us face or worry about, such as online trolls or the fear of war.

We ended the session with Jac by performing our poems to the rest of the year group.
