Welcome to the poetry workshop for kids! This is an exciting place where we'll explore the wonderful world of poetry together. Whether you're a budding poet or just curious about writing, this workshop is for you. Exclusively for British Council members, this workshop is free of charge.
Here's how our session will unfold:
- Introduction to Poetry: We'll start by discussing what poetry is and the different types of poems. We'll talk about rhymes, rhythms, and the creative ways poets use words to express their feelings and ideas.
- Imagery and Descriptive Language: We'll explore how to paint vivid pictures with words using imagery and descriptive language. We'll play some fun word association games to spark creativity.
- Writing Haikus: Haikus are short and sweet poems originating from Japan. We'll learn about their structure and themes, and you'll have a chance to write your own haikus.
- Poetry Slam: A friendly poetry competition! If you're up for it, you can share your favourite poem or one you've written during the workshop.
