We Are Writers

Huge congratulations to all the pupils at Westbury who are now published authors!

As part of our Westbury Book Festival back in the Spring term, all our pupils submitted stories, poems and other pieces of writing to be published in our very own book.

Box of books

Mrs Ramage ran a whole-school assembly to introduce the book and Key Stage Leaders read out their favourite stories before giving out the books.Every pupil should now have received a copy of the book to keep.

We gave parents and carers the opportunity to purchase extra copies of the book and we have a few copies left, so if you are interested in having another one, having seen what it looks like, please contact the school office.

Well done to everyone involved.

Star Poet!

In English lessons, Gabriel in Year 8 had to turn a piece of prose from the WWII story ‘Rose Blanche’ by Roberto Innocenti into a poem.

He used the ending of the story to be the format of his poem. Gabriel has used his own thoughts and cleverly turned this piece of prose into a poem.

Spring

Robins sung as the cold retreated.

Grass of lush green advanced with a gentle note of cinnamon in the air.

Roses bloomed and cherry blossom flowers, swayed back and forth.

The colour of life splattered across the crimson field.

Trees burst into colour and animals filled the world with life.

Birds in their nests tweeted a tune and their message was heard.

Spring had triumphed!
