Stand Up Poetry

This engaging and energentic workshop is ideal for developing an appreciation for rhyme and reason, boosting speaking and listening and performance skills.


Rhymes are everywhere - songs, playground games, football chants, hymns, nursery rhymes, raps, TV adverts, radio jingles, tabloid headlines. You don't have to think to find them; all you need to do is listen.


This workshop can encourage students to become writers, readers and performers through the noisy practice of rhyme and rhythm, sound, pattern and echo.


Our learning experience is focused on word awareness, the poetry of everyday subjects and the value of memory and anticipation.


Students are encouraged to invent and explore as they are led through a series of games and activities to help them to generate ideas, and create a poem or a rap.

Activities includes: up-beat opportunities to explore: imagery, rhyme and rhythm, alliteration, assonanace and use contemporary music in performance.
