FANTASTIC POEM BY ONE OF MY STUDENTS
I recently had a fantastic visit to Brookfields School, in Sutton. I asked pupils in Year 6 to write a poem on the theme of 'growing up'. I am honoured and excited to be able to share this fantastic, and deeply thought provoking piece by Lucy.
GROWING UP by Lucy
When I was five
we talked about fairies and unicorns
but now we talk about Brexit.
When I was eight
we talked about glitter and dolls
but now we talk about politics.
When I was eleven
we made slime all the time
but now we talk about climate change.
When we were twelve
we had out last sleepover
before we went to high school
but now we hate each other.
