Classic Poetry Recitals 2024

Our Classic Poetry Recitals project came to a wonderful conclusion with recitals from every class in assemblies last week. The performances were fantastic, and it was certainly delightful to see the passion and engagement the children had. A huge well done to everyone. A big thank you too to all the parents who attended the assemblies – you were a fantastic audience!
