North Norfolk pupils celebrate love of poems and books
Pupils at a North Norfolk School have been celebrating their love of poems and books.
The children at Kelling Primary School are working with award winning local poet Phil Barrett, who is the resident poet at the school until Easter.
He has been working with the children to help build their confidence in reading and writing. He has even written a poem especially for Kelling Primary entitled, The Gold Book.
The children and staff also recently celebrated World Book Day. All children and staff dressed up for the occasion as their favourite story book characters and enjoyed a number of activities during the day including a costume parade, a share-a-book session, where the older children read their favourite stories to the younger ones, and an inter-house literary quiz.
Head Anita Gutteridge, Gutteridge said: 'This World Book Day was the school's best ever. All the children and staff had a fantastic day and it was wonderful to see the whole school working together to celebrate their love of books.'
