PUPILS at Calow Primary School participated in a literacy week based on the theme of legends.

Each year group looked at a particular legend and used it to stimulate creative approaches to literacy. Some classes learned about Robin Hood, Saint George, King Arthur, or even legendary creatures such as unicorns and the phoenix.

The week culminated in a day in which children were asked to come to school dressed as someone or something from legend.

The competition was judged by Councillor Walter Burrows and his wife Elizabeth and Mrs Catherine Winter, the chair of governors.

Characters among the competition winners included the Abominable Snowman, Merlin the Wizard, Aphrodite and Medusa.

Headteacher, Martin Thacker said, “the legends theme really enthused the children. One class staged a special assembly for parents telling the tale of Robin Hood. There was excitement throughout the week that generated some wonderful Literacy work from the children. The competition inspired many creative approaches to dressing up as a legend!”
