On Friday we had a visit by children’s poet Tony Mitton. He was fantastic, demonstrating how you can make a simple poem come alive. The session demonstrated the importance of literature, as well as (dare I say) phonics! He would often leave the end of a sentence blank, and we could easily fill the space with the correct rhyming word. It was a wonderful session and we were able to buy one of his books at cost price….and he signed it too!
