Musical poetry inspires at Ark Ayrton

Ark Ayrton Primary Academy recently played host to author/poet Brian Moses, with two local schools joining pupils in years 1­-­6 to take part in special workshops run as part of Portsmouth BookFest 2013.

Brian used percussion instruments, different voices and movement to bring his poetry alive, kindly donating a signed copy of his first novel to Ark Ayrton. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed listening to his readings and were even able to join in with his poems.

They also had the opportunity to ask how old Brian was, which poem was his favourite, what inspired him to become and author and where he got his ideas for poems.
