A selection of year 5 students were chosen to represent Christ Church Academy in a special version of talking newspapers. Courtney Abbot, Megan Tighe, Imogen Jones, Freya Dillon and Isabelle Wheat, generated original Christmas poems taking inspiration from their favourite festive texts. The girls then learnt,rehearsed and recited them off by heart, enabling them to be recorded for the visually impaired listeners of the newspaper. The special edition has proved highly popular and Christ Church looks forward to being involved again this coming year.
