The children were excited to celebrate National Poetry Day on Thursday. Ms Jacobs and Mr Windle treated KS1 and KS2 to a special assembly all about poetry. Children were selected from each class to read out their ‘cinquain’ (a five line poem rich in imagery) that they had written about a memorable place earlier in the week. The school also collaborated on a mass recital of Robert Louis Stevenson’s rhythmic poem ‘From a Railway Carriage’. Half the school replicated the sounds of a train, while the other half performed the poem over the top. Finally, Mr Windle led a whole school poetry writing session! The children left inspired, entertained and just as little bit more poetic.
