Create your own poem and explore what is special about where you live, with John Osborne.

The poet and primary school teacher will help you discover what is important about the roads, streets, fields and shops around you and the people you see every day. Together you will create your own poem exploring what is special about where you live and why there is nothing more important than the familiarity of being at home.
