Thursday 2nd October is National Poetry Day! To celebrate, St John’s CE Primary School has launched a poetry writing competition. The theme this year is…
You could write a poem about an event e.g. Bonfire Night, the Great Fire of London, the Olympics or one of the World Wars. It could be about a person such as the Queen, William Shakespeare or even a family member or friend! You could choose to write about a special memory for you such as a birthday, a holiday or a special pet. Your poem can be about absolutely anything as long as it fits under the theme ‘Remember’.
You can choose any style of poem e.g. an acrostic, a haiku or even a shape poem. Think carefully about your presentation, as well as the words, as this could gain you extra marks with the guest judge!
The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 1st October. All entries should be handed to class teachers along with your name and class written on it. Prizes will be awarded in an extra special assembly on National Poetry Day!
I can’t wait to hear your fabulous poems!
