Poetry came to life as 4 teachers read from their favourite poems and the Year 4 class performed in our topical weekly assembly.
Mrs Dorman read the 'Tale of Custard the Dragon' by Ogden Nash and explained how she remembered this poem so vividly from her school days.
Rabbi Kerbel read from the 'If'' poem by Rudyard Kipling and explained how it had been his late Grandfather's favourite poem and his Grandfather had actively lived by the wisdom in the poem.
Mrs Finkel read passionately and dramatically to great applause from the 'King's Breakfast' by A.A. Milne
Miss Cohen then read from a poem that had been her favourite from when she was just a child; 'Now I am Six' by A.A. Milne
The assembly was completed by Year 4 standing up and performing the 'Ning Nang Nong Song' by Spike Milligan.
Mrs Dorman then launched a school-wide poetry competition and we look forward to reading the results .A huge thank you to Mrs Dorman, our literacy coordinator at NWLJDS, for elevating poetry to the frontline!
