    Poetry and Pizza

    7th November 2014

    It was great to share our new talents for learning poetry through 'Talk for Writing' on our poetry and pizza afternoon. I was impressed by 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' in Year 5 and '1066' in Year 4 but I also liked the drama of the year 2 'Rats'. The poems written and recited together by the children of FS, Year 1 and Year 3 were amazing. The poems the Year 6 children had written contained some impressive vocabulary. The money raised from the sale of pizzas will be used for prizes for Christmas party
