National Poetry Day/Poet Visit

National Poetry Day

In order to support literacy and creativity in school we are delighted to inform you that the award-winning poet, Kate Wakeling, will be visiting our school on Thursday 4th October as part of our National Poetry Day celebrations.
Kate Wakeling’s delightful collection of children’s poems, ‘Moon Juice’, (7+) was the winner of the 2017 CLiPPA,(The Award for the Best Children’s Poetry Book). Kate will be doing a poetry tour of the school; visiting the children in their classrooms with an engaging presentation of her poetry along with sharing tips on writing poetry.

As part of our celebration of National Poetry Day there is a poetry competition on this year’s theme of ‘Change’ for children in Years 3 – 6. The winners will be chosen by Kate and presented with a copy of her poetry book, ‘Moon Juice’, at an afternoon assembly followed by a book signing.

If you wish to purchase signed copies of ‘Moon Juice’ please pay in advance using ParentPay and complete and return the payment slip to the office (email replies accepted) by Wednesday 3rd October.  If you wish to purchase the book with cash please send in with your child the exact money and completed payment slip, in a sealed envelope clearly marked with name and class, on Thursday 4th October.

We are delighted to have Kate Wakeling visit our school and we hope that you will support this event.
