On Thursday 5th March, Kenilworth celebrated World Book Day. Our Learning Assembly was filled with so many of our favourite characters including superheroes, princesses, Harry Potter characters and even authors! We were so impressed with the incredible, creative costumes – it created a real buzz amongst our children.
During our assembly we were treated to four fantastic poetry performances from all of the children in the school. These poems had been shared with everyone by the House Captains during their House Assembly on Tuesday 3rd March. They were asked to teach their House members a new poem and all decide on actions to accompany it. Balmoral recited ‘Mix a Pancake’ by Christina Rosetti; Buckingham performed ‘Who’s Who’ by Benjamin Zephaniah; Windsor recited ‘Humpty Dumpty Went to the Moon’ by Michael Rosen and Sandringham performed ‘There was an Old Man with a Beard’ by Edward Lear. We would like to thank our amazing House Captains for all of their hard work: it wasn’t an easy task but their effort really paid off!
Finally, we shared our school story – ‘The Kenilworth Catastrophe‘ which was created the day before. Each class was asked to add a paragraph to create our very own school story; then one child from each class was chosen to read it to everyone in assembly. We were blown away by the children’s imaginative story lines and the readers had their audience completely captivated. It was absolutely brilliant! A huge well done to all of our children for their wonderful efforts. Keep your eyes peeled in the news section so that you can read The Kenilworth Catastrophe for yourselves!
