Poet prompts pupils to pick up a pen.

Children's poet Gez Walsh has been leading workshops at Royds Hall High School in Paddock.

Gez, of Dalton, is pictured being interviewed by pupils for the school newsletter, Roydian Slip.

Former joiner Gez is famed for his funny, child-friendly poetry.

It is designed to encourage reluctant readers to pick up a book.

The writer, whose books include Parents, Zits and Hairy Bits and Someone's Nicked My Knickers, held poetry readings with pupils from Years 7 and 8.

His visit coincided with a poetry week which the school was hosting to celebrate National Poetry Day.
