The Truth about Objects with poet Matt Abbott - Home educators session

Links to literacy, history, speaking & listening and group work are developed throughout this workshop.

What is poetry?

How do you write a poem?

What is the truth behind objects in the collections?

Join us to celebrate National Poetry Day 2019 with poet Matt Abbott.

Using our collections as inspiration we will try to discover the truth about objects. Meet a professional poet who will guide children through creating a piece of original work. Images will be taken by your child/children on iPads to record which objects inspire them to create poetry – images will be sent via email to each family for post visit work.

Workshop includes:

  • Deconstructing and rearranging original pieces of poetry to create their own take on modern poetry.

  • Handling objects to inspire a poem based upon the theme TRUTH

  • Meeting a professional poet – Matt Abbott

  • Creating original pieces of literacy work

Duration: 2 hours

This workshop will take place in the Wakefield Museum Learning Zone which is located on the Upper Ground Floor of the Wakefield One building.

The workshop has a fee of £6 per child. Please also book free adult places for the adults attending.
