Today we were delighted to have Ash Dickinson visit school and host a poetry assembly to the whole school.  This was followed by individual workshops to each class throughout the day and a final assembly to showcase everything the children have produced throughout the day.  Ash Dickinson has been full-time as a poet since 2008. He is a multiple slam champion, including Edinburgh, Cheltenham, the Museum of Scotland and BBC Radio. He has performed in Australia, Canada, USA, Spain, Jordan, the Czech Republic and Germany, and headlined shows and festivals throughout the UK.

The children and teachers have been inspired by Ash.  The teachers have been given insights of different ways to teach poetry and the children have loved the creativity Ash has inspired.
