Senior children who were placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in a recent 'Winter Writing Competition' were invited to read their stories to their family and friends in a Declamation Evening in Acorns Hall.
Selected children in Years 7 and 8 joined the readers with their winter poetry compositions. Family and friends heard some imaginative stories, including how Father Christmas had a stowaway in his sack and the unwitting child turned into an elf, stories which involved arctic foxes or squirrels trying to survive winter, as well as pixies who lived in a Christmas pudding and needed to find a new home after theirs had burned down! The audience also heard moving World War One themed poetry from Year 8. It was a wonderful evening which celebrated writing, story-telling, imagination and inspiration!
