Recently we conducted our annual 'Poetry Week' at school which involved many different exciting events. The week kicked off with a visit from the nationally renowned poets, 'Partners in Rhyme' who performed to the school in the hall. Following this, the talented duo ran workshops for different groups of children.
English Co-ordinator, Mrs Hilton, also organised for some special 'Mad Hatter Tea Parties' to be held after school, where children got the chance to read their favourite poems as well as enjoying some cake and scones.
A special assembly was also held during 'Poetry Week' to enable the teaching staff the chance to read their favourite poems to the children.
Headteacher Mr Woolard said, "Poetry Week is one of the highlights of the Hereward calendar. The visiting poets certainly set the scene for the week and the many events held promoted a real love of poetry and reading. It was a great week."
