They're poets and now they know it at The Arnewood School.

Year 9 pupils at the New Milton secondary enjoyed a National Poetry Day full of activities to learn more about the literary art form and have fun with it.

Student Issy Campbell started the day by bravely reading a poem, about students in classrooms, to the entire staff at their morning briefing.

Volunteer students then visited lessons around the school – including PE -performing poems.

The netball game in PE was actually stopped so that the players could listen.

A school spokesperson said: "We rounded things off with poetry performances standing on a box in the playground at morning break.

"The performers used a megaphone to read the poems to the masses. Football games still occurred around the outside of the performances."
