Visiting Author Tomos Roberts


This week we were lucky enough to be visited by poet Tomos Roberts. Tomos inspired the boys with a reading of his popular poem, ‘The Great Realisation’, before enjoying an in-depth discussion on how to write poetry, current affairs, social media, expressing yourself in a digital age, and collaborating with Ashley Banjo and Diversity. To finish, Tomos helped the boys to create a whole group poem. The result was a hilarious tale of a Minecraft goalkeeper whose skiing escapades (alongside his friend – an astrophysicist) lead to disastrous consequences!

Tomos certainly left an impression on the boys and the boys will follow up the session by writing poems on a topic that they feel passionately about. For more of Tom’s poems, go onto YouTube, where you can find his channel: Probably Tomfoolery.
