National Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry Day (1st October), We will be taking part in some poetry competitions.

For ages 5-7, the poetry competition theme is ‘An Acrostic For You’ – they can write an acrostic poem about their favourite person.                       It’s a fantastic way to learn about poetry as well as practise descriptive writing, but it’s also a kind and thoughtful activity, that will put smiles on many faces!

For ages 7 – 11, the theme is ‘Peculiar Pets’ – they can create an animal mash up and write their own poem about it (it can be any type of poem!)    What would your perfect peculiar pet be?  An acrobatic bunny? A tech savvy puppy? A vegan crocodile? A giraffe that likes to race? A superhero cat?

Winners each get a creative writing goody bag! PLUS every entrant receives a sticker and bookmark. A certificate of merit for all young writers chosen for publication!

The deadline is the 23rd October.
