This week the Pre-Prep boys have been celebrating poetry. The Senior School boys from the Acting and Performance club came to perform some poems for our boys in Belmayne House in Tuesday’s assembly. We were thoroughly entertained by their performance, which included The Sound Collector by Roger McGough and The Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan.

To follow in their footsteps, each Pre-Prep class learned a nursery rhyme together and worked out how to perform it, along with actions. They performed the rhymes for each other in Thursday’s assembly. This was the perfect way to mark National Poetry Day.

We have really enjoyed exploring rhyme in poems, and are getting very good at spotting rhyming words.
