John Rice – Poet

Today, a poet came to visit us! His name is John Rice, and we had a whole school assembly with him.

He read us loads of his poems, and we did lots of movement and actions!

Check out our class blogs for more information about his workshops, and have a look at our photos to see what we got up to in our assembly:

Reading for Pleasure Fundraising Day

Today has been our reading for pleasure fundraising day!

All of the children have had the opportunity to come to school in their pyjamas and bring their teddy bears and favourite books¬†for a ‘bedtime stories’ theme.

Each class has been working very hard in order to learn a poem off by heart. We got together in our key stages to perform the poems to other classes.

As part of our reading for pleasure, each person brought in £1 contribution for one of our charities, Stoke Association. Mr Smith from the Stoke Association came into school to do some awareness work with Years 5 and 6, and the School Council gave him all the money we raised.
