Performance Poet Adisa

Bentley Wood welcomes back Performance Poet Adisa

It’s been a while since we’ve had any literary visitors, so we were absolutely delighted to welcome back Bentley Wood favourite Adisa! The ever-popular poet and performer entertained and inspired our Year 7 and 8 students.

While it was great to have Adisa perform online during lockdown, It was even better to see him live and have the whole year group together in the hall. His poems ranged from comical to moving, with clever rhymes and nostalgic stories.

After the workshop, 15 lucky students were selected to take part in a small writing workshop in the library. Here, Adisa guided the students through writing their own poetry, on the theme of ‘home’. The young writers came up with some fantastic poems which really transported us to the various locations around the world.
