The Forest of Respect… a poem written by children in Year 5 at Mersey Drive Primary and Park View Primary School in Bury

… is where everyone is welcome.

… makes you feel tranquil.

… feels like home sweet home.

… soothes your soul.

Earlier this year, Bury Schools Linking Programme approached Community Arts North West to lead a series of drama workshops, where children met their linking partners for the first time in a neutral venue, the Polish Social Centre in Bury.  In sessions led by Chelsea Morgan and Jade Williams from Community Arts North West, children took part in a practical drama and creative writing workshops. They worked together with their linking partners; found connections and built new relationships. They talked together, contributed to and presented a group poem which reflected their learning and their thoughts. Together they created this beautiful poetry anthology, we think it deserves to be shared far and wide!
