National Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry Day on Thursday 4th October this year we participated in Poetry Wonderland.  Poetry Wonderland is a national writing competition and is run by Young Writers.  Children were able to explore poetic themes in a fun and exciting way before writing their own original poem.   The theme was open, so children could decide what they’d like to write about. 

After the competition has closed, entries will go to the Editorial department, who create regional books and they will read every single poem they receive.  The school with the best set of entries will win the Young Writers’ Award of Excellence, which we can showcase in our school.  The winning poems may even get published!
