Young po­ets work to be pub­lished

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

There were smiles all round at St Bartholomew’s Pri­mary School when young po­ets learned their work is to be pub­lished.

Sev­eral pupils in P3 re­cently learned their po­ems about ‘My Cool School’ will fea­ture in the Sense Po­etry - Amaz­ing Sen­sa­tions book.

The young­sters who en­tered the Young Writ­ers’ Na­tional Sense Po­etry com­pe­ti­tion will see their work in print when the book is pub­lished on May 31 and sent to li­brary’s around the UK.

Pupils in P2 have also shone in their lat­est project where they learned how to make a dig­i­tal book with a lit­tle help from their friends at Cale­do­nian Univer­sity.

Staff and stu­dent men­tors from the univer­sity’s schools outreach pro­gramme - The Cale­do­nian Club - worked with all P2 pupils to cre­ate an on­line dig­i­tal book com­plete with an­i­ma­tion, nar­ra­tion and sound ef­fects pro­vided by the pupils.

The chil­dren chose the cir­cus as their topic and cre­ated all the art work them­selves with help and sup­port of their stu­dent men­tors.

Par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers also got to share in the won­der­ful work when they at­tended the show­case and of­fi­cial launch of the on­line book.
