SPOTLIGHT ON...

Form 3 have been writing acrostic poems about World War I using the word ‘Poppies’ to celebrate the centenary. The children learnt information about those who fought on the front line during immense battles such as that at the Somme and reflected on the sacrifices made by those who fought for King and country. Here are some wonderful examples by Krishav and Danae who have shown excellent use of adjectives. Well done.
