Each session was different which gave us the chance to explore lots of ideas with the children. Our first year 4 class closed their eyes to read a poem about The Old Library which Pauline had written especially for them. The children wrote down the pictures that had come to mind in their imagination whilst listening to the poem and Pauline joined these ideas together to make a wonderful class poem about the spirit of The Old Library.
It was jam-packed day and each session was different, with lots of interesting and thoughtful ideas from the children. A big thank you to Pauline who did an excellent job of proving that everyone can be a poet just by using their imagination and words to express themselves. It was a great way to celebrate National Poetry Day and we’ve come away with so many wonderful creations from the children which we hope to use in imaginative ways throughout the project.
Thanks to Miss Prior in Year 4 for helping us organise the day and we’re looking forward to doing more with St Anne Stanley in the future. If you know another local school that would be interested in The Old Library project activities, please email email@example.com – we’d love to get you involved.
