Pupils were treated to an afternoon of rhyming when an acclaimed poet visited their school to lead an innovative workshop.

Jacob Sam-La Rose, who has delivered programmes at venues such as The National Theatre and The Barbican, worked with pupils at Mead Primary School, Amersham Road, Harold Hill.

Youngsters wrote, edited and performed their own poetry.

“I didn’t think that I could write poetry,” said Jessica Rose, 10.

“But Jacob helped me explore my thoughts by using questions and answers about what made me and before I knew I had written my own poem.”
