Poetry by Heart competition

It was a joy to watch our Junior School pupils take part in the Poetry by Heart competition on Thursday 27 February. All of the children performed exceptionally well, each one with their own unique style of delivery - they certainly made it very difficult for the judges! 

Congratulations to the overall winner Year 5 Tabitha, thanks to her entertaining recital of 'Instructions For Growing Poetry' by Tony Mitton. 

Further congratulations to Year 5 Ellie, who took second place with 'Rules' by Brian Patten, and our joint-third winners Year 6 Jack ('In the Tree's Defence', A.F. Harrold) and Year 6 Eve ('The Door', Miroslav Holub). 

Tabitha's entry will now be sent to through to the regional competition. The National Final is being held on 23rd March in The National Poetry Library in London.
