In March 2013 our school worked alongside other schools in the Walton Partnership to celebrate book week. As part of this project Mark Niel, the Poet Laureate for Milton Keynes, visited Bow Brickhill Primary School inspiring both staff and pupils with his poems.
 
Mark worked with every class during the day, supporting the children in their poetry writing, resulting in a collaborative poem entitled ‘Help, my school has turned into a zoo!’ which was performed by all the pupils at the end of the day.
 
The children’s ideas from the poem were incorporated into a display to celebrate the partnership project which was exhibited at Milton Keynes Library.
