Lost Words, snowdrops and bluebells

by Michael Ford last modified 12 Feb, 2021 08:45 PM

Wiltshire's Longford CE VC Primary School has been spreading Christian cheer through art and poetry.

Headteacher Louise Knipe says:

"We have been hugely inspired by Robert Macfarlane's book 'The Lost Words' over the past year. We were sent a request for some Remembrance colouring in November, and we sent back some Remembrance Poetry and Pictures, which were warmly received.

"Inspired by this, and to spread a little cheer and happiness, we sent out some Star Poetry to Nunton Church and to the residents of Willowcroft Nursing Home. The Revd Anna-Claar Thomasson-Rosingh has displayed our poetry with candles and used extracts in her services.

"The residents of Willowcroft were delighted with the poetry and pictures, revisiting them and reading them out loud. This has been a difficult time for them.

"Now there is the promise of Spring, and people still need hope and a little more poetry! So we are sending out some Snowdrop and Bluebell poems and pictures, written by children learning at school and at home.

"The children have put their hearts into this, pleased to help others - even those who are reluctant writers!"
