Poetry day

Year 2 enjoyed a visit from the local author and poet, Christina Gabbitas, for National Poetry day with Year 1 and Reception.  The children enjoyed listening to rhyming songs and stories as part of a read along assembly.  They loved meeting all the creative characters from the rhyming story, ‘Felicity Fly Meets the Dragon Fruit and Friends’.   Each KS2 class took part in a half an hour poetry workshop where they created an eight line rhyming poem all about the seasons.  They also had the opportunity to listen to some of Christina's poems and ask questions about what it's like to be a poet.  All in all it was a lovely day.  Thanks to Christina for spending it at Springbank.
