Anneliese Emmans Dean’s school visits

Buzzing-cover-2-wAnneliese is very happy to adapt her workshops and we would work with you to meet your school’s requirements. The information below gives an idea of some of her more popular school events.

Poetry Show
An interactive, cross-curricular, multimedia poetry performance of the Buzzing! show about garden minibeasts. Anneliese likes to perform this for the whole school at the beginning of a visit to fire everyone up, enthuse them about poetry and set the tone for the visit. The show includes various options, enabling it to last from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the time you have available.

Oral poetry workshops (Reception & KS1)
These can take place indoors (in a hall where everyone can move around) or outdoors, and are themed round minibeasts.

Anneliese’s Rhyme Time Rambles include lots of rhythmic, rhyming minibeast poems to join in with.

The Millipedes Galore workshop includes creating and performing a poem about minibeasts in free verse or in rhyming couplets, as you prefer .

Written poetry workshops (KS2 and KS3)
Anneliese offers curriculum-linked poetry writing and/or performing workshops exploring different poetic forms, such as haikus, limericks and free verse, and different themes including minibeasts, birds, the human body and food.

Other options include a limerick workshop specially designed to complement the Cornerstones Beast Creator project.

Further workshops can be developed to fit around your requirements.

She is also available for longer term ‘poet-in-residence’ assignments in schools.
