Poets visit - Alex Wharton and Jo Bennett
This year's World Book Day focus is on Poetry. To bring Poetry to life for our children, we have had two visiting poets. Jo Bennett, parent and poet visited on Monday and inspired the children to write poetry in the classroom. On Wednesday, Alex Wharton, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7rHgXIvkYA, visited giving workshops to years 2 and 3 whilst entertaining the whole school in assemblies. He spoke about the creative spirit, how to perform and where to find inspiration for ideas. We are fortunate to have had both poets bring poetry to the forefront of our children's thinking.
