At New Invention Junior School, children are exposed to poetry in a variety of ways: poetry being read aloud to them; Performance Poetry; comprehension and understanding of poetry and writing poetry (different forms).

Poetry has been mapped out so that children get to experience a full array of different poems and poets during their time at New Invention Junior School.

Each term, classes take it in turns to perform a poem in our weekly assembly allowing them to not only have fun with poems, but also work on their Speaking & Listening Skills.

Every year we celebrate National Poetry Day in October. During October 2021, we linked this to Space Week and children were asked to come up with Space related poems. Some poems really did rocket!
