Leverington school channels wild instinct to raise standards
Leverington Primary in Wisbech took advantage of non-uniform day on Tuesday to stage ‘Creative Writing Day’ with pupils dressed as animals!
The school pride had to write about animals in a variety of genres; works included stories, instructions for animal care and a series of poems about our nearest neighbours. Pupils who produced the best work presented their pieces to the school in a special celebration ceremony.
Deputy Head Elaine Aldrich said: “It allowed the children to get into the feel of the characters, enhance their writing and improve standards throughout the school. They loved it!”
“We wanted to show that writing can be fun” She added.
The unique event debuted in the spring and proved such a roaring success, it has been organized each term since.

The terrific costumes were brought and made from scratch by barking pupils and their respective teams of helpers. A lion, mole, elephant and Scooby Doo are only a few examples of the wildlife and whacky characters that took part.
Next year, the school will get ready for their next Creative Writing Day featuring pirates - Arrr!
