THE POWER OF READING

english9

To bring English alive, we regularly hold writers events in school. These include author visits, including performance poetry by Brian Moses.  We hold an annual Book Week where a book fair visits the school, children and staff dress up as well-loved book characters,  and children make class or individual books to share on book corners.
