He’s a poet, and he DOES know it!
P4-7 really enjoyed listening to Mr Coelho talking about his poems and teaching us more about similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, repetition, alliteration and rhyme.
He even signed a few books for our school.
Thank you to the Scottish Book Trust for organising the visit.
Finally, the official photos from our whirlwind day have arrived! Enjoy! 🙂
The application had to be submitted by the class teacher. So, Miss Burnett submitted a short 50 word application that included the children’s humour and ideas. Miss Burnett described Castleview as a magical school and shared our goal of increasing the life chances of our school family. Miss Burnett described her class and shared that they are epic fans of his books, especially as they have a very calming influence on the class. Finally, Miss Burnett shared that his books were inspiring her class to up-level their writing and to improve their literacy skills.
