Poetry by Heart
This term we are participating in the Poetry by Heart competition. Our children will be learning and reciting their favourite poems by heart. The focus of this is on the outward presentation of a poem that they enjoy without lots of theatrics.
The competition goes through different stages; the first of which is selecting class winners and building up to year group and whole school winners to represent the school at county, regional semi finals and then the grand final. Through this process, our children will bring their chosen poetry to life for themselves, their friends, their families and their community.
Please support your child in developing their presentation of the poem – remember using their voice and emotion only rather than grand gestures.
