To commemorate the Coronation, KS3 students were asked to write a poem to mark this historic occasion. This is something that the UK’s poet laureate, Simon Armitage does as part of his role. A new poet laureate is chosen every ten years. Part of their job is to write poems that either mark special occasions, such as the late Queen’s funeral or King Charles’ coronation or to reflect on Britain today. This is exactly what we asked KS3 to do – with great results!
Well done to all our Penwortham Poet Laureates!
