Year 3 Poetry Recital

Before the Christmas holiday, Year 3 were given a special New Year poetry challenge: to practise and, if possible, learn by heart a New Year poem, to be read or recited in our first week back. Undeterred by lockdown, we held the recital over Zoom, and the children rose to the occasion magnificently! We... heard beautiful, sensitive readings of Tennyson’s magnificent “Ring Out, Wild Bells”, and several children even learned Matt Goodfellow’s lovely “Poem for a New Year” by heart – a real undertaking! Their recitations were sensitive and moving, and all the more impressive considering they were done from memory. Well done, Year 3 – and Happy New Year!
