Ian Bland Poetry visit

On Monday 20th February, Christ Church was fortunate enough to be visited by the poet Ian Bland. Our day started with an assembly listening to some of his hilarious poetry about being at school which our children loved. Throughout the day, Ian ran workshops for our Infant and Junior children, ranging from Kennings in Years Three and Four to an adaption of his poem "I wish I could be" by Years Five and Six. In each workshop, the children had an opportunity to discuss and share ideas, write their own poems and perform them to their class. Our day concluded with an assembly, which was attended by parents, allowed some of the children to share their poems to the school. Thank you to Ian, our staff and our wonderful children for a great day of poetry. We'll be doing the "Dinner Lady Dance" for weeks. smileyno
