National Poetry Day

This week we gave National Poetry Day an international flavour when the children responded in their droves to a request for favourite poems within families. We have received poems in Punjabi and Swedish as well as  English, showing a deep and inspiring response to our request from families for their favourite poems.  Inspirational choices such as “Invictus” and “If” have provoked discussion as well as the many humorous poems chosen: “Please Mrs. Butler”  “I wish I’d looked after me teeth” “Hunting the Snark” and poems that have a duel meaning such as “Funeral Blues”, as well as poems created for National Poetry Day 2017
