For ages 5-10+

Join award winning children’s poet Joseph Coelho, as he invites you to read along from his book, Poems Aloud.

Joseph will read poems about animals, poems about feelings, poems about music, poems to join in with and poems to perform in special ways.

Joseph will also introduce ideas such as rhyme, rhythm, alliteration, onomatopoeia, diminuendo and crescendo (volume), and invite children to create their own poems, in a session that will entertain and educate in equal measure.

Funded by Bradford Opportunity Area, events explore everything from constructing beatbox rhymes to space inspired verse as poets from Bradford and beyond share their top tips for creating captivating poems. Content is suitable for students across KS1 and KS2.

For each or our themed days children can take part in an exciting competition tailored to their Key Stage/ age. For more information, view our competition packs linked below:
