We are lucky to have our own Writer in Residence working with our children and Families.  Sarah Hehir is an local writer and playwright who has written for various audience and forms including poetry, BBC radio plays as well as critically acclaimed plays.   

Each week, Sarah works with various groups throughout the school on creating amazing writing and performances. 

The Recording Studio

A poem by The Lunchtime Club (Y6)

‘Is it Tuesday?’ Lee thinks before he’s even quite awake.

His sleeping fingers push up the buttons on the main mix

and press 2TR USB to main, ready to record.

The microphones wait. Maths must come first and literacy.

But some time after lunch, it’s real.

Lee’s voice committed to CuBase and to history.
