Athelstan Community Writing Week 2

You may remember that back in November, we asked you to participate in our first ever Community Writing Week. We loved seeing the writing sent in by children and their families, and so ask you to join us again for Community Writing Week 2 from 20th - 26th May.

The theme of Community Writing Week 2 is poetry!

We want to encourage children, adults, siblings, grandparents, aunties and uncles - anyone and everyone at home - to join in with some poetry-writing activities throughout the week. Anyone can be a poet, and it’s a lot easier than you might think.

On Friday 20th May, the week will launch with a getting-started video on the school website and on Google Classroom. There will then be an app and Google Classroom message every day Monday to Wednesday to give you some more writing ideas.

In addition to writing at home, we would like to take the opportunity to invite families of Y2-5 children into classrooms for some extra-special Early Bird Wording sessions where you will have the chance to write some poetry alongside your child.

All parents/carers are welcome to join their child in their classroom from 8.35am to 8.50am. You will be able to enter your child’s classroom through the way your child normally enters school. Please note the amended days for this short week.

Monday 23rd May   Y2 and Y4    

Thursday 26th May Y3 and Y5

Parents of Foundation and Y1 children, your Early Bird days remain unchanged and there will be the option to read poetry with your child this week.

Further details are attached to the email with this newsletter.
