Andy Tooze, visiting poet

Today we had an exciting day with a visit from Mr Andy Tooze! He is a poet that works in schools and visits them to inspire children to read and write poetry. As it's world Book Day next week we felt this would be an ideal time for a visit! First of all he led an assembly and read out some of his poems and the children shared their favourites too. After that he spent time in each class reading some of his poems and giving the children some helpful advice about writing poetry. At the end of the day we had a special assembly to show our work. Some of the children read out their poems and every class performed some poetry to the other children, parents and guardians who were there. A great day and a super visit from Mr Tooze!
