Blessing by Emelia and Stella

blessing sml

In English at St Mary’s, students have been exploring the theme of water.  As today is National Poetry Day, students explored the poem ‘Blessing’ by Imtiaz Dharker.  Emelia and Stella created this Powerpoint in which they found pictures to go with the powerful imagery in the poem. 

  

Not my Business

In English this term we have been looking at poetry, particularly poets who live and write about Africa.

We looked in detail at a poem by Niyi Osundare, a Nigerian poet.

The poem entitled, Not my Business explores the fears and responses to living in an oppressive society where people are subjected to beatings and even disappear.

The Wooden Horse
