The day we met Michael Rosen…

As part of our World Book Day celebrations last week, 30 year 5 and 6 children attended an event hosted by the Tower Hamlets Schools Library Services!

At Thomas Buxton, we held a short-story writing competition: the challenge was to write a short story in 500 words or under.  There were 30 deserving winners; they won the opportunity to see Michael Rosen performing – some of the children even got to meet him!

Michael recited some of his poetry and told us a little more about himself.  As ever, he was entertaining, humorous and above all else: inspiring!

After the performance, he was kind enough to sign some of his books for us.

Thanks Michael!
