Rhythm and rhyme come alive

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Roundabout - by James Lawren­son

LIT­ER­ARY he­roes old and young filled the cor­ri­dors of Stowt­ing Church of Eng­land Pri­mary School dur­ing book week. On Thurs­day the whole school came in dressed as their favourite book char­ac­ters, in­clud­ing many Harry Pot­ters, a Robin Hood and an Anne Frank. Even head teacher Su­san Cox joined in the fun dressed as a dal­ma­tian. Rhythm and rhyme was the theme, with each class pro­duc­ing a book of po­etry to share with the rest of the school. Other events in­cluded a big quiz, with chil­dren racing to find an­swers to the 36 ques­tions hid­den around the build­ing. Mrs Pauline Dick­in­son, teacher of Years 5 and 6, said: “We had a fan­tas­tic time with book week, and the chil­dren thor­oughly en­joyed them­selves.”
