We had lots of poets in the library today. Children shared their own poems, or favourites they had learned in class. I love how supportive the children are of each other, as it is not easy standing up in a crowd. This is an annual event and I continue to love how keen children are to read and write poetry. Many of our children have extension writing lessons and have had their own poems published in different formats. Check out some of the photos below. As a fun thing to do after our readings, children eat popcorn and are given a bookmark to take away. Always a fun day to celebrate New Zealand National Poetry Day.
