A Bilingual Poet in Schools by Michaël Vidon

A Bilingual Poet in Schools by Michaël Vidon

Playing tracks by

Michaël Vidon, Y6 Teacher, Children, Group 1, Group 2 and more.

This podcast results from the work I have done in Redlands Primary School performing my poems, running multilingual poetry workshops and interviewing children and teachers on their relationships with languages at home and at school.

I have worked with a Year 5 class and a Year 6 class on idioms they have heard in English and home languages. This was the start of a reflection on the status of home languages at home and in schools. I have collected some of the poems produced by the children as well as their thoughts and shared some of my poems.
