National Poetry Day- Thursday 3rd October 2019
We had a fantastic poetry day this week. As a class, the children wrote a poem on truth and then performed it in their tree assemblies. We were very impressed with all the poems Year 2 brought it. They even got a chance to read their poems to year 1. Well done Year 2, you are all poets!
