BREIS at Heron Hall
Years 7, 8 & 9 had a series of fantastic workshops with author, poet and rapper BREIS this week.
The events, together with an assembly, are part of the school's celebration of World Book Day
The workshops were held in the school library.
The theme of the day was creating your own rhyming couplets .
The students then had the chance to read their poems out and receive feedback.
BREIS always gave a very well received assembly to our year groups.
BREIS (pronounced breeze) is a dynamic rap artist of Nigerian heritage based in South London.
As a respected purveyor of lyricism, BREIS’ smooth flow is full of witty lyrics, peppered with wordplay, humour and substance.
