Poet from the Peaks: 


Today, we welcomed Andy Tooze, the Poet from the Peaks, to St. Augustine’s and what a fabulous day we had! Andy worked with the whole school and with individual classes to perform some of his own poems and to support the children in writing their own. We had an amazing day full of laughter and joy, surrounded by language, words and rhythm. Andy was a true inspiration to us all and the teachers were blown away by how enthusiastic and eager the children were to write and share their own work! He brought out the very best in all of the children and they were all enchanted from the beginning to the very end. We won’t be surprised to see a few notebooks appearing in pockets after today! Thank you, Andy, from us all here at St. Augustine’s for such a fantastic day. We know the children will continue to channel the inspiration you have fostered in them to their future writing, both in and out of school.
