Creating Our Own Book

We Are Writers


In the lead up to our World Book Day Celebrations, every child in the school writes their own poem about a topic of their choice. The pupils choose their own style of poem: acrostic, limerick, sonnet, tanka: the list goes on... and compose their own poem being mindful of it's structure, rhythm and rhyme.  After polishing and a few tweaks, these poems are collated and published into a school book, which each child receives on World Book Day.


You can find our books in our school library as well as our local one too: Spellow Library.  At Spellow Library, we are the featured authors on display and have performed our poems for the local community to celebrate our fantastic writing.
