Gran Can You Rap?

 

In English, the year group has been learning about performance poetry.  We have been discussing the different features of performance poetry as well as focusing on the poem’s delivery.  To practice this, students have been introduced to a poem called Gran Can You Rap? by Jack Ousby.
