On Wednesday 27th September renowned poet Harry Baker visited Molehill Primary Academy in Maidstone, as part of their celebrations for National Poetry Day.
Harry, Grand Slam Poetry Champion, has twice delivered 5-star Edinburgh Fringe festival performances and is a TED speaker, broke from his UK tour to give an assembly where he shared his childhood love for words and language. Excited pupils and staff were then treated to a recitation of some of Harry’s most beloved poems, including Dinosaur Love and Falafelloeffel.
Throughout the morning, children in years 5 and 6 attended poetry workshops led by Harry and produced some inspired poetry of their own. It was an incredible privilege to work with Harry.
