National Storytelling Week runs in January/February. Over the past few years this has gone from strength to strength, encouraging all families to take part in creating and enjoying storytelling.
Anti-Bullying Week falls in November, and is now in its thirteenth year. The focus of the week will be to raise the issue of anti-Bullying in school and reinforce the school council’s anti-bullying policy.
National Poetry Day is the nation’s biggest celebration of poetry. In October the children enjoyed jumping on board the poetry express. From class acrostic poems to rhythmic Harry potter rhymes the children enjoyed a fun packed morning. Y5 & Y6 children looked at Epitaphs — a short poem or phrase which remembers something that has gone forever. The children really enjoyed sharing their poems with the class and read them out in different ways. The poems really were excellent and ranged from birds and rainbows to the seasons and Kingswood. Keep an eye opening when visiting school to see a celebration of the children’s fantastic work.
