Young poets had their creative juices flowing thanks to a visit from a top poet.

Terry Caffrey held a special poetry day at Seaton Sluice First School on Monday thanks to a nationwide competition.

Schools around the country were invited to enter the Vision for Education poetry competition earlier this year.

And Year 4 pupil Nina Tustin won the regional competition on behalf of Seaton Sluice First School.

The nine-year-old welcomed Terry to their school, where he presented her with a prize of a £25 voucher while all those who entered received a certificate of achievement.

Terry, who has won eight literary awards, spent the day working with the pupils on their creative writing, incorporating art, literacy, creative writing, and social studies.

Terry said: “Writers aren’t special people, they just have a special way of using words.”
