Performance Poetry Afternoon

This week has been a special week to be at our school, beginning with Mother’s Monday and ending this morning with a wonderful celebration assembly. It does make me so proud to be head of such a super school community.

We have also had our reading week, with the Book Fair joining us and every opportunity to get involved in reading and enjoying books. So many children are now achieving their Bronze reading certificates, as part of our reading challenge, and it would be so good to see everyone reading regularly at home so that every child is able to achieve 25 reading sessions and achieve their Bronze certificate. It means so much to the children and helps their reading enormously. We even gave away silver and a GOLD certificate this morning!

Yesterday, as part of our reading week, we held our very first performance poetry assembly for the school. Children were asked, as part of their homework, to learn a poem that they enjoyed and to perform it in front of the school. With a stage, microphone and PA system all set up, it made the occasion truly professional and it was such a delight to see so many children exuding confidence and eloquence in their performance. Well done to everyone who took part, it was a real pleasure to listen to you all performing your poems.

I have been able to record and upload this delightful afternoon for you all to listen to, along with some photos of our children’s superb achievements. Well done everyone!
