Winter in Cassiobury Park
It might feel like the middle of winter but there’s still plenty going on in Cassiobury Park. This term all schools visiting Cassiobury are challenged to enter our poet-tree competition.
As part of every visit the children will be given the chance to write a poem based on what they have experienced during their visit.
The best poem from each school will receive a prize and go on to be entered into the borough-wide competition. If you can’t make it to the park then your class is still welcome write a poem about Cassiobury to enter the competition.
Popular topics for visits include:
Please have a look at the attached newsletter to find out more. If you could print out a copy to go on the staffroom notice board and / or forward to Colleagues who might be interested that would be wonderful. I’ve also attached a flyer for an the Ghosts of Cassiobury event I’m running at Watford museum on 17 February if you could pass that on to whoever complies the school’s ‘Friday letter’ that would be amazing.
