Slambassadors 2013

The very exciting 2013 Hackney Teaching School  Alliance Slam took place on 21st June at the Round Chapel in Clapton.  Year 6 children at Gayhurst  were one of 7 Hackney schools who worked with well-known poets and spoken word artists in the lead up to the event, writing and  developing their own poetry along the theme of identity. Children wrote amazing pieces of free verse  poetry and a group of 5 Gayhurst children were selected to perform their  poems to over 500 dynamic and loud  audience members. They were amazing.
