Brian Moses - Poet and Author

Today we had Brian Moses in to read some of his brilliant poetry to the whole school and then work with us in the afternoon. He read some really funny and a couple of scary ones that made us all jump!

Brooke Harris, from Pine class, had her work published on Brian's blog - so now she is a published author.

Well done Brooke!

Brooke's poem was all about a 'Super Slug' who could move very fast! It can be found at
