Mrs Philip's English Y5 set received a lovely letter from the wonderful author/illustrator, Marcia Williams, following their visit to the Folkestone Literary Festival this week. Marcia was delighted to receive copies of the children's fabulous 'Romeo and Juliet' storyboards, which were inspired by her comic-strip retellings of Shakespeare's plays.
"Dear Year 5,
I was lucky enough to meet you all at the Folkestone Book Festival. Thank you so much for giving me copies of your wonderful Romeo and Juliet comic strip retellings, I did enjoy looking at them all. I thought that you had all done a really fabulous job!
I liked the fact that they were all very different and some of the artwork was outstanding. I also liked the fact that some of you used stick people, because these can also work very well and be very expressive - as you have proved!
Thank you also for being such a great audience and joining in with everything. I had a wonderful time and I hope you all did too. Good luck with all your future projects and thank you again, it was a pleasure to meet you all. Very best wishes, Marcia"
Year 6 children from St. Stephen's journeyed to the lower market in Canterbury on Friday the 11th November to take part in the Remembrance Day ceremony to honour all Servicemen and women from the armed forces who lost their lives in the line of duty.
The image to the right below is an excellent example of the creativity of our Year 3 children, who showed their support by making a beautiful poppy wreath.
