In October, our children took part in a Young Writers Poetry competition called ‘Little Laureates’.
They had a week in school dedicated to writing imaginatively and creating an exciting poem for the competition. In total 145 children entered their poem and we were very pleased that 138 children have been published in the ‘Verses from Essex’ book.
Young Writer’s congratulated the children for the high quality of poetry displayed and informed us that our school had the highest number of entries accepted. We are very pleased with the creativity and effort demonstrated by the children and this competition has been a wonderful way of helping the children feel enthusiastic about literacy and develop confidence in their own writing.
