Families and friends were treated to a host of different poems yesterday from classes across the school in celebration of National Poetry Day. Mr Smith and some djembe drummers from Yellow and Red Classes gave us an enthusiastic performance of Walking With My Iguana, which we had learnt from the beginning of the week. Green Class taught us the months of the year though a song and we heard how enchanting it is to open a book. Purple Class spoke about the leaves turning from green to brown to gold in their “Seasons” poem. We had cookery advice from “Five Little Monsters” performed by Indigo Class. Did you know that porridge that’s too runny – tastes funny? Lilac Class gave us some very strange advice through the poem Please Mrs Butler, we all decided that it wouldn’t be sensible to follow the advice given. Why would anyone want to hide a rubber up their vest! Finally Mrs Indarsingh read us a poem about smiling, there were plenty of children and adults smiling throughout the assembly. What a memorable way to start the day. Well done to all!
