Future Choices: Poems for Our Time


A selection of poems by children from Adur District primary schools, giving their reflections on the 2021 poetry project themes of Fast Forward or Choice.

This was a collaborative project between Shoreham Wordfest and Kay Walton of Rap’n’rhyme, supported by Adur District Council.

The poems were inspired by school workshops with performance poet Kay Walton and rapper Jon Clark during the summer term 2021 and on-line resources with recorded workshops, performances and worksheets which are still available on our website: Online schools poetry project

The poems are a wonderful example of how poetry can generate creative responses to some important, and not so important questions.  The children let their imaginations fly from the prompts of Fast Forward or Choice, and the poems are enhanced with engaging illustrations from some of the children and Kay Walton.
