Creativity and Expression Galore
National Poetry Day was celebrated in style at St Christopher’s, with the whole school involved in poetry-based learning and activities. Infant School children were treated to poetry-based assemblies and special readings in their library sessions. Year 3 found or wrote pieces based around the theme of ‘Stars’, and Years 5 and 6 wrote and shared their own poems throughout the whole day. The highlight of the day, however, was the visit of the entire Year 7 from the Senior School. Over 160 children came down to work with Years 2 and 4, running ‘word lucky dips’ that they had designed themselves and leading the younger children as they produced their poems. Cross-phase groups worked together as words were chosen, lines created and performances perfected. There was creativity and expression galore, with face paint, music and dancing. A great time was had by all.
