To celebrate National Poetry Day 2018 all the children from Y1-Y6 did an amazing job learning a poem off by heart and performing it in class. This Friday we had a poetry slam where all the class winners performed and they did a fabulous job. Some Sixth Form students from Marlborough came to judge the competition, giving the performers some excellent tips beforehand. They had a tough job but in 3rd place was a great choral poem from Oscar, Max and Oliver from Y5, in 2nd place was the expressive Bea from Y1 and the winner was Lucia from Y4 who had written her own poem for change about a homeless girl which she performed with conviction and clarity. Thank you to all the winners and to Marlborough for lending us Tabi, Sophie, Madison, Danielle, Muhaimin and Yamuna.
