Year 7 students had a first attempt at writing a traditional haiku, using their creativity to represent the images physically through salt dough or illustrations. They are currently working towards writing their own narrative poetry to complement the study of the novel “Finding Langston” which explores Langston’s journey into the world of literature and the poet after whom he is named. Some amazing examples of their work are shown HERE
