Patron of Reading at St Bede's Catholic College

My third visit to St Bede's as Patron of Reading was a very fruitful visit, with lots of excellent group poems created by Year Nine students.

Using themselves as a resource, they spent time remembering, and built poems about violence and love and family together.

I also met the whole of the new Year Sevens, and had a lovely time talking to them about my reading challenge, and the books that they love. It's always such a pleasure to meet enthusiastic readers, and these were some of the sweetest.

My next visit will be in March 2017 for World Book Day, when we will be celebrating everyone who achieved one of my reading targets, and giving out prizes. I can't wait!


  1. I remember doing group poems when I was younger but I forget how they came out.

    You have my permission to print out my above comment and paste it into a group poem.

    1. Thanks very much. I just need a few other contributions and it's good to go...

  2. You had a very productive visit at St Bede's. I love making poems.

    1. Have you ever written a love poem for a special someone?
