Poetry by Heart

We are learning poetry by heart in school for our celebration of World Book Day 2017.  

Pupils in Classes 3, 4 & 5 need to choose a poem, or part of a poem, to learn by heart, individually or with a partner and should learn and practise their poem over half term. Children may have already selected a poem from a book at home or in school, otherwise use the links below:

All pupils in KS2 will be reciting their chosen poems by heart in class after half term (on Thurs 23, Fri 24, Mon 27 and Tues 28 March) and some children will perform their poems on     World Book Day assembly at 9am on Thursday 2 March 2017.

Parents and carers are very welcome to join us; please come along if you can.

Class 1 and Class 2 will each learn a poem to perform as a class. They will work on this after half term and the classes will perform in the World Book Day assembly.
