First of all, a massive congratulations goes out to my team. Birmingham city for beating Arsenal in the cup final! I was there with 32000 Brummies and it was one of the proudest days of my life. Let’s just pray we can now stay in the league.

Monday 28th February I was nursing a hangover and about 4 hours sleep as I set off to Telford to do another day at John Randall School to get ready for the slam we would be holding.

Tuesday 1st I put on a 2 hour performance/chat and a workshop at Shire Oak school and then got the young people to perform at the end of the day to friends, teachers and even parents!

Wednesday the 2nd I was at Warren Farm Primary School helping the year 5 class get ready for their Romeo and Juliet music video. What fun that was!

Thursday the 3rd I was at Birmingham museum and art gallery with Bewdley School putting on quick fire half hour workshops where I got the young people battling with 3 words that I gave them to rhyme with.

Friday 4th world book day was celebrated at Dormston School where teachers and pupils came to school dressed as a book character. I held 1 hour workshops with the year 7s and 8s and also judged the winner for the fancy dress competition. I hope to go back there again in the future.

P.s more recent posts will be coming very soon!
