Free Poetry Show for Primaries!
27 June 2014
Local primary school reception classes were treated to a free performance of poetry by Cbeebies star PoetryJoe.
The star of CBeebie’s Rhyme Rocket, performer, writer and – of course! – poet, set the stage alight with his pop-up world of fabulous foods, beastly bugs and peculiar pets.
Armed with his trusty overhead projector and the props, pop-ups and pictures of John O’Leary, Poetry Joe introduced a packed auditorium of 250 under 6s to lots of new friends, including a naughty-but-nice hamster, a cheating cheetah, and a whole family made out of paper and light.
A great introduction to poetry and spoken word for an early years audiences, the show was rounded of with the audience creating their very own poems in the Tacchi-Morris foyer!
