Verse Vs Verse

 

Thirty of our year 4 pupils have been selected to take part in an exciting 3-year project in partnership with the John Lyon’s Charity and Eastside Educational Trust. 'Verse vs Verse' is a creative Literacy programme.  It takes children on a 3-year journey of discovery.


The project culminates annually with an intensive period of activity, where the children will write and revise their work, coach each other and prepare for a poetry slam, under the guidance of London’s leading performance poets and spoken word artists. At the slam, small teams of up to three pupils will stand in front of their peers and perform their own poetry, using voice and gesture to bring their words to life.


Verse vs Verse is not about the mechanics of reading and writing, but rather about helping children to access the magic found in books. We know that discovering this magic will help the children to unlock their potential and achieve more in their academic studies.  


Each year, the children deepen their knowledge and interest in literature by working under the guidance of creative practitioners, writers, publishers, teachers and spoken word artists.    
In Autumn, children will broaden their reading, using drama as a way to explore a range of different books and spend time getting to know different characters, places and stories. In the Spring, the children use this inspiration to develop their writing skills and in the Summer term, the participants combine their skills by writing spoken word pieces. 

 

In the Autumn and Spring terms, Eastside Artists will come into the school to work with the selected children for two morning workshops.  The workshops will consist of hands-on, innovative, creative activities relating to the focus for the term, spanning a variety of creative disciplines ranging from character exploration through drama, storytelling through animation and writing spoken word poetry.

 

We are very excited to be involved in the Verse Vs Verse project, which started this Autumn Term and look forward to watching the children grow as they progress through the set programme.
