St Hilda’s Mother’s Day Poem with the BBC

22 Mar, 2020

St Hilda’s pupils wrote a special poem for Mother’s Day in partnership with the BBC’s Tiny Happy People

Children from our St Hilda’s CofE Primary School in Stretford, Manchester, working in partnership with the BBC’s Tiny Happy People, created Mother’s Day poems to thank their mums for all their love and hard work throughout the year.

 

Tiny Happy People has been created to provide free online resources to parents in Manchester, to promote the development of children’s early language skills. Their aim is to help children to start well and so feel prepared for the challenges of school, by meeting three key aims:

Understanding instructions from their teacher

Speaking and communicating clearly with their classmates

Asking their teachers questions

 

The pupils at St Hilda’s were given the chance to create this special poem for their mums, and help other families in the area, through the Tiny Happy People project.

Miss McCoy, school Principal, told the Manchester Evening News:

“The children come across with such personality and confidence.

The BBC commented on just how special St Hilda’s is due to its warm nature and wonderful, talented pupils.”
