Ian Bland – Poetry Workshop and Library Opening

 In News

On Monday 16th July, Ian Bland, a professional children’s poet will be visiting our school to deliver exciting poetry workshops for all of the children.

Ian will begin with a performance of his work in an assembly, packed with rhyme, rhythm, fun and interaction with the children and teachers. He will then officially open our new libraries before working alongside each year group to plan, write, edit and perform their own poem.

We have 20 places available for parents to attend the assembly in the morning at 9:00 – 9:45am. This will be limited to one place per family. Please book via WisePay.

At the end of the day, Ian will lead a book signing. If you wish your child to purchase a book before this event to be signed, please see the list below.

If you would like to purchase one or more of these books, please bring the order form with the correct money to the office, no later than Friday 13th July 2018.
