Thursday 4th October saw National Poetry Day arrive at our academy. Our day had started superbly thanks to a special message from poet Joseph Coelho who wished us all the best in our epic poetry day. As the day progressed all classes discussed, performed and recited a number of original and famous poems before taking part in the BBC Teach Live Lesson via their website. We were lucky enough to even get a mention on the screen and several famous authors contacted us directly via Twitter during the day. Overall, this was a fantastic experience for our children and we hope their love of poetry can continue to flourish.
