Joseph Coelho Visit

Scottish Book Trust Schools Event with Joseph Coelho

Thursday 22nd February

Joseph Coelho will be in school to see children in from P4-P7.

 

Joseph is a performance poet and playwright who is “a fresh new voice in children’s poetry”. He works tirelessly to dispel the view that poetry is “boring” with his fun and exciting poetry.

Following the event Joseph will sign copies of his books. If your child already owns copies please get them to bring them along to be signed.

Your child can also buy copies of Joseph Coelho’s books on the day (see attached letter for prices).

Children are under no obligation to buy books but if you would like them to we are able to accept cash and cheques (please make them out to Scottish Book Trust).

P5 Visit the Victorians

P5 have been investigating life during the Victorian era.

We are very interested in Victorian schools, so one morning we visited the History of Education centre in Leith.

We dressed up in a typical Victorian school uniform. Then had some lessons from a very strict teacher.

We enjoyed the experience but found the schools and the teachers very different from schools today.
