Joshua Sigal - Visiting Poet

Posted: Jan 31, 2020 by: jayne.peacock on: Learning Blog

Last week we were thrilled to welcome the internationally acclaimed poet, Joshua Seigal, to the federation.  Over the course of the day he visited all of our schools, performing some of his poetry from Yuck and Yum, I Bet I Can Make You Laugh; I Don’t Like Poetry and Little Lemur Laughing.  He also shared with us some of his more recent poetry which is yet to be published and ran a short poetry workshop, enabling all of our children to write their very own Joshua Seigal inspired poem.  It was a fantastic experience and it was wonderful to see the children so enthralled and engaged by poetry; Joshua was so full of passion and enthusiasm for poetry that it couldn’t help but rub off them.  Who knows, perhaps he will have inspired a budding poet of the future!
