Some of our more able Year 5 writers were invited to the Discovery Academy last week, on Tuesday 6th June, to take part in a Literacy festival. During the day, they wrote some superb diaries linked to the theme ‘My special place’, listened to the well-known author Glenn James and produced some excellent art work linked to their diary writing. Following this, they were invited to a special awards evening the following night with their parents to celebrate their work.

Harry Gething won first prize for his excellent artwork and explanation of his work, Hamera Khaliq came second for her wonderful diary writing and Summer Pickerill came third for her creative artwork.

Well done to all of the children for their hard work, superb attitudes and fabulous team work. You made us very proud!
