  • St Joachim’s Classic Poetry Project 2022

    On the last week of January saw the conclusion of St Joachim’s annual Classic Poetry Project – an English project which is focussed on reading, analysing, and reciting classic poems. On Friday 21st January children from Reception to Year 6 came together to celebrate the project with class recitals of famous poems such as The Charge of the Light Brigade, by Alfred Lord Tennyson; which were of the highest standard. It was a delight to welcome so many parents to the celebration assembly as it was fantastic for the children to have such a large and appreciative audience. Children from Reception to Year 6 all recited their poems with great enthusiasm and joy. There were some particularly powerful recitals, and all the children had learnt their class poem off by heart.
