On the afternoon of Tuesday 26th June, we were treated to a return visit from Neil Zetter.
Neil describes himself as a London-based comedy performance poet, author and entertainer. He uses his poetry to develop literacy, confidence, self-expression, creativity, performance and presentation skills in 3-103 year olds.
He makes language fun and accessible for the least engaged and stretches and challenges the most motivated. He certainly entertained us today with poems of superheroes.
The children really enjoyed his previous presentation, and this year’s visit, and Neil really enjoyed visiting us.
If you want to buy one of his books, it may not be too late.
Our Pupil Parliament are organising a world cup sweepstake to raise money for sports equipment for third world countries.
