Poetry Week visit

by | Sep 28, 2018

As a school, we have decided to celebrate National Poetry Day this year by having a poetry themed week. This will be the week beginning 1st October 2018.

We have organised an exciting opportunity for the children as part of poetry week. On the 4th October, a children’s author and poet will be visiting our school to motivate and inspire children in their creative writing.

Joshua McManus, who is the author of ‘Did the Elephant Choose His Nose? And Other Poems’ will be talking to the children about believing in their imagination and how this is key and the start of everything and anything wonderful.

Joshua has kindly offered to do a book signing during the day, therefore if you would like your child to have their very own copy signed by Joshua, please follow the link below to purchase the book. Please ensure it is delivered before this event if you want it to be signed! Your child can then bring their copy to school that day ready to be signed.

Buy the book on Amazon
