Poetry Together

14th October, 2021

We were honoured to take part in this yearโ€™s Poetry Together whereby the children performed โ€˜The Crownโ€™ by Carol Ann Duffy which we thought would be fitting in light of the Queenโ€™s Platinum Jubilee.

John from the Chelsea Pensioners also recited โ€˜For the fallenโ€™ to pay respect for the upcoming Remembrance Service followed by โ€˜Taking the standโ€™ written by John Bailey and performed by the children.

Poetry Together is a project led by Gyles Brandreth and Dukes Education to encourage schools and care homes to connect with each other, learn a poem off by heart, and come together to recite. In 2020, we were blessed to perform alongside The Duchess of Cornwall and look forward to many more recitals in the future.
