Performing with Julia Donaldson
Some of our Year 6 pupils were invited to Poetry Festival Hall on Thursday 2nd October as part of the World Poetry Day celebrations. Our pupils learnt two poems by Julia Donaldson (author of ‘The Gruffalo’ and many other children’s books) and performed them to an audience of over 200 people. The pupils were commended for the actions they created for the poems and their clear voices and expression. Julia Donaldson read and performed one of her poems alongside Wyvil pupils and described them as “great performers” and “wonderful children”. Well done to all of the pupils for representing Wyvil so positively at such a prestigious event.
