On Thursday 10th February children from St John’s Tower Hamlets  in Year Five were invited to the Tower Hamlets Poetry SLAM competition. The class have been working hard in school with their poet in residence Zohab who has been inspirational. Seven members performed their individual poems and then they performed as a group. They delivered the poetry with great amounts of energy and clarity, despite a few nerves. The ‘Best Effort’ award went to Lila who showed great Resilience and Endurance to overcome her stage fear. She performed her poem beautifully. Well done everyone!
