Tattenhall Pupils Inspired by a Poet's Visit

Poet Ian Bland

Last week, Tattenhall Park pupils welcomed poet Ian Bland into school to spend a whole day with the children. Ian worked with all classes from Year 1-to Year 6, allowing the children the opportunity to hear original poems and create their own pieces in specialised workshop sessions.
After the event, one pupil shared her thoughts on the day "The whole school found him funny and it really made me want to write poetry of my own" and Headteacher, Mrs Jo Hawkins said "This was a wonderfully creative and inspiring day for everyone and I'm sure the children went home with lots to tell".
If any child would like to share their poems with Tattenhall residents, please do email them to for your chance to get your poems published on I'm sure our readers would love to read them!
