National Poetry Day - 2nd October
Newlands have been celebrating the joys of poetry today.
At a special assembly staff and pupils took part in a poetry competition.
All the classes recited a favourite poem and the judges from William Bradford Academy had a difficult job deciding the winners, who will each receive £20 worth of books for their class.
Congratulations to our winners:-
Infants - Mrs Thompson's class 'As Tasty as a Picnic'
Years 3 and 4 - Miss Shaw's Class 'Please Mrs Butler'
Years 5 and 6 - Mrs Jones's Class 'The Sound Collector'
Well done to everyone , what an enjoyable morning. Many thanks to our judges, Mrs Beech and AS students from William Bradford Academy.
