On Thursday 28th September, the Quest Academy celebrated National Poetry day, opening students’ eyes to the wide variety of fantastic poems on offer.

All teachers were asked to select and display their favourite poem on the door of their classroom as they welcomed students in. It was great to see such a range of poems on offer, from Rudyard Kipling’s ‘If’ through to ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’ by Spike Milligan.

Students really engaged with these poems and were challenged to link them to their current lessons – some links being harder than others!

Looking forward, it will be interesting to see what tastes teachers have when it comes to World Book Day. Who knows, we might even see displays or dressing up in store…
