You may be aware from previous newsletters that, following work with Karen Argent from the Letterpress Project, our Year 6 pupils went on to work with Miss Cook and Miss Tang to write an amazing collection of poems on the theme of refugees and asylum seekers. We are delighted to announce that their poetry has been published in a book entitled ‘We all sleep under the same stars’. The children will have the memorable experience of attending their very own book launch at Newman University on Monday afternoon. This launch will be introduced by Scott Davidson, Newman University’s Vice-Chancellor, and hosted by Beverley Naidoo, children’s author.
Each child will be presented with their own personal copy and we hope to bring more back to school for you all to see. The book has been launched this morning on the Letterpress website to celebrate World Book Day.

We congratulate our Year 6 writers for their creative flair and thank Karen Argent, Miss Cook and Miss Tang for inspiring the children to make this happen.
