William Byrd Primary Academy

Poetry Slam

Schools from across the Trust took part in a Poetry Competition where they had to recite and perform a poem of their choice.

Each school demonstrated their commitment to the development of Oracy which lay at the heart of this competition.  It was a truly memorable moment for our Trust’s pupils to showcase their creativity, talent and collaboration and stand proudly in front of a large audience who applauded each and every young poet with such energy and delight. Year 5 and 7 winners of the in-class competitions which were held across Barnhill, Belmore and William Byrd came together for the second time and competed for their poetic finals.

Many congratulations to the winners of this competition and each school team who worked hard with dedication to prepare the pupils for this rewarding event.
