Notes

Year 7-Maidenhill School.Stonehouse.Stroud.Glos. 15th June 2010
With thanks to Vicki for organisiing it all and for filing all the poems.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before England played Algeria a lively World Cup workshop took place in the library at Maidenhill School in Stonehouse near Stroud with Crispin who was back making a return visit. .Year 7 students discussed and wrote present tense/in the moment poems – on just what the World Cup meant to them. Students were asked to imagine being a player, a fan or anything-anywhere when the World Cup is taking place. Read now in the light of day, as Vicki in the library points out, the optimism is great….if not the results on the field!
But well done the students and well done Spain.
