Monday 14th and 15th of March I was at Warren Farm Primary school helping out camera man George getting the final parts of their poetry video performed and recoded. I was also choreographing sword fight scenes with the lads. I hope to have that video on my site some time soon!

Wednesday 16th I was once again at the council house performing at a chance to shine tea party. There was a lovely crowd there and I loved performing for them.

Thursday 17th I held a workshop at NethertonPrimary school getting a bunch of enthusiastic year 5s writing and performing!

Friday 18th I was back in Telford holding a workshop at John Randall Primary.

Saturday 19th I was fighting in Coventry…and I won!

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!

Jobs for this week!

My first poetry action this week was Tuesday the 18th of Jan at the Steiner Academy in Hereford. I worked with pupils there around the theme of ‘identity’ and really got some cracking and inventive stuff. Let’s hope they send some of the poems my way!

 Thursday the 20th of January I went back to Bearwood School to present the winning team with their ‘slampion’ trophy. A massive well done to them!

Then later on that day I’m off to Kings Heath community centre to perform at an event being held by the police force discussing with young people what can be done to make their area better!

Friday 21st I have a meeting with Warren Farm Primary School to work out our lesson plan for the upcoming project I have there.
