Picture the Poet is a creative poetry project for KS2 and KS3 children, run by the National Literacy Trust in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery and performance poetry company Apples and Snakes. A touring exhibition will be based in Norwich between May and July this year, and Norfolk schools are encouraged to sign up by going to the Trust’s website.
As well as an opportunity to see the exhibition, schools will be offered a full day’s CPD training, a visit from a performance poet AND publication of pupils’ work in an anthology. How great is that? If we were a school then we’d LOVE to get involved – it looks as though there is much fun to be had!
