Author Visits.

We were thrilled to have author Polly Ho Yen and poet Alex Wharton  come to Holymead! 


Polly spoke to Years 5 and 6 and did workshops with year 6 about how she gets ideas and how how everyday things can become magical with a bit of imagination!

Alex spoke and performed to Years 3 and 4. This was followed by poetry workshops with year 4 children where they had to write poems imagining they were inanimate objects complaining about their lives. These were very entertaining! 


Both Polly and Alex had a wonderful time with the children and more importantly the children had a great time too! It’s been fantastic to see how inspired they have been from these experiences.
