Year 11 Visit Birmingham Symphony Hall for GCSE Poetry Live
Year 11 GCSE English Literature pupils travelled to Birmingham to hear Simon Armitage, Oxford Professor of Poetry, read his collection of poems and poems from the AQA Power and Conflict cluster of poems which the pupils are studying. Gillian Clarke and Daljit Nagra were inspiring and read from their collection of poems. Carol Ann Duffy, Imtiaz Dharker and John Agard all gave the pupils valuable insights into the GCSE poems the pupils will be examined on in May, this year, when they sit their GCSE Literature examination. Poets responded to pupils’ questions and discussed how their poems connected to other poems in the Power and Conflict cluster.
Peter Buckroyd, chief examiner for GCSE Literature spoke about the two skills vital for success in the GCSE Examinations. The first session looked at how pupils might deal with unseen poems in the exam, both how to think about them and how to write for the best possible results. The second session looked at comparing poems and how to write effectively about them in the exam. All pupils commented on how valuable they had found the day to their revision of the poems.
