On 31/8/2016, 2/9/2016, 5/9/2016 and 7/9/2016 we had Cam, a professional poet. We were lucky
to have him because we are learning poetry. We learnt four types of poems from Cam.
Here are some examples of Dylan Thomas portrait poetry;
Here are some metaphoric poems;
The reason we got Cam to come is at the end of this term we will have a poetry slam (slam post here)!!!
