Farmilo’s fantastic book launch at Linney

Pupils get creative showcasing their writing skills in poetry

Children from Farmilo Primary School in Mansfield have been working hard to show off their creative writing skills – and we’ve been on hand to help to promote a book of poetry produced by the pupils themselves.

On 4 December, Linney hosted a book launch celebrating the publication; with pupils, parents and teachers coming together to showcase a job well done.

With local TV and newspapers abuzz with the quality of the work on show, the Linney Create building also welcomed crews from Notts TV, Chad and Mansfield 103.2 to help promote the poetry.

Adam Newman, KS2 Leader and Curriculum Coordinator from the school said “we were thrilled to be able to celebrate the launch of the Year 6 Book – We Are Mansfield – which Linney have so kindly and generously supported us with. It celebrates both our town and the fantastic writing of our pupils and what a fantastic celebratory event it was too, with pupils’ families, teachers and other local groups who have helped make the book possible”.
