Congratulations to Year 5 pupil, T Bax, who has been highly commended for a poem she wrote for National Poetry Day in association with Love Reading (click here to see their website)

Mrs Bax told us “We are so proud of her poem and also her commendation!”

We love her poem too!

The Truth About School

School is like a rushing river,
With its highs, it’s lows, it’s bends and friends
It’s good then it’s bad, it’s happy then it’s sad
It’s all part of the rhythm.
There are bumpy parts
With rocks and pebbles traveling their own way
There are calm pools
Where it’s easy to flow free and just be me.
With the white water rapids as my tests of talent
And the waterfalls
With their strength and power
Running fiercely, hour after hour.
Eventually, we will reach the ocean
The next chapter of our education
With friends, knowledge and celebrations
We set forth to our new destinations.
