Wow, what lucky children we are at Russell Scott!
Today we were visited by the famous poet Tony Walsh. We went to a special assembly where he told us about his life growing up in Denton and performed some of his brilliant poems.
Some of his poems were about the importance of books and reading. He worked really hard at primary school and then Audenshaw High School to become a poet. How inspiring!
Well done to Ellis in 1K, who read the text on our Manchester mural so well that Tony invited him to come to the front to help him perform his poem about Manchester!
We were so entertained by Tony’s funny poems, that we were inspired to create our own this afternoon!
