Ledbury Bench Poetry 2016

This was an exciting project at Ledbury Primary School linking poetry, computing and values education in collaboration with the Ledbury Poetry Festival.

  • Eight bench locations were chosen around the town.
  • Children worked with local poet Sara-Jane Arbory to create “collage” poems linking the bench location to a value
  • Each KS2 class performed their poem in a short film
  • The films were uploaded to a dedicated website and shared via QR code plaques fixed to the benches and a printed leaflet.
  • The children led two trails around the town during the 2016 Poetry Festival.
