I spent a very special day there today. The Head Teacher is Mr Dolman. When I was at school, Mr Dolman was my Year 6 teacher. He was very good at inspiring children to write poetry. He inspired me to write poetry, and I’ve been writing it ever since.

I hadn’t seen him since I was 11 years old … It was wonderful to meet up with him again, and to see that he is still entertaining, educating and inspiring children today.

I performed my Buzzing! poetry show for the children in his school. Afterwards I put on some poetry writing workshops. The children wrote some great poems!

I hope the staff and pupils enjoyed my visit there as much as I did! And that it inspired them to carry on writing great poetry. Not that they need much inspiring from me, when they have Mr Dolman as their Head Teacher!
