At St Thomas, we provide each year group with opportunities to explore and perform poetry as part of the development of both their Literary skills and speaking and listening skills.

We believe it is important that children are encouraged to read poetry. Poetry features in our English curriculum as explicitly taught units of learning, and we also have an annual Poetry Slam that takes place every year. Throughout the year, children are exposed to a range of poems and encouraged to read, visualise, perform and evaluate poetry.
