Withington Girls School; Manchester

I was asked to visit this WONDERFUL school on the 23rd of February and to work with the classes in KS2.

Everyone at this school was just so very very friendly, warm and welcoming. The girls worked very hard indeed, writing poems on their own or sometimes doing that and then making whole class performance poems.

In Y5 the girls wrote poems that made a type of weather into a person, based on my poem Frosty Pinchface. That is a hard idea to understand but all the Y5 pupils grasped it straight away and wrote really exciting poems, giving their weather character invented names. I especially liked Tina Tornado!

The other classes wrote about crazy zoos and UFOs bursting with aliens.

A lovely lovely school and I had a really enjoyable day. Great fun.

Which is what it is all about really
