Children at Hereward Primary School were joined by nationally renowned poet Paul Cookson on National Poetry Day as he entertained the school with a selection of his wonderful poems.
The fun continued in the afternoon when Year 5 and Year 6 pupils were lucky enough to have workshops where they wrote and edited their own poems with the poet helping them unleash their full potential.
A number of children also attended a special 'Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea Party' which was a wonderful opportunity for them to share a selection of their best loved poems over a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes.
Year 6 pupil Zoobia said: "Today has been a chance to relax, share poems and enjoy cakes and treats."
The school's English co-ordinator, Caroline Hilton, said: "Any event which promotes the love of reading and brings together children from our school community is simply fabulous."
