‘Peculiar Pets’ poems by Wave pupils published in new national poetry book

Poems written by four primary aged pupils from Wave’s Penwith Academy have been published in a new book after impressing judges in the national Young Writers ‘Peculiar Pets’ poetry competition. 

Enthusiastic young readers from Glendinning Academy will soon have hundreds more books to choose from in the academy’s library - thanks to a £6,000 grant from the Foyle Foundation.

Take talented young writers from nine Wave academies across Cornwall and Devon.  Give each academy a picture to spark their imagination and ask them to write a section of a story and then pass it on to the next academy.  The result – three incredible ‘Chain Stories’ which are funny, exciting, chilling and, above all, BRILLIANT to read. 

Pupils and staff at Glendinning Academy, Wave’s special free school for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Devon, are incredibly happy to have moved into their brand new building in Newton Abbot. They are now busy making plans to invite members of the local community to join them for an exciting celebration event and see their new building and facilities during the summer term if Covid restrictions allow.
