John Dougherty, poet visit

Glenfield Primary were lucky enough to be visited by famous children's poet, John Dougherty, during the last week of term. John is best known for his 'Stinkbomb & Ketchup-Face' face series as well as his hilarious 'Dinosaurs & Dinner-Ladies' poem which John recited himself. The children were excited to hear a real poet performing his own poetry and were surprised to find out that poetry can be out anyone or anything- and that it doesn't have to rhyme! John also performed a silly but very funny poem called, 'Auntie Fred' using his guitar, where the children joined in with the chorus and showed fantastic cooperation and enthusiasm. The children also asked some superb questions about John's inspiration for his poetry and were keen to write their own poems later in the day, when John had left. John Dougherty left the children feeling very inspired and eager to test their creativity during the afternoon when writing their own poetry.
