Off By Heart poetry competition
We are holding our 3rd annual ‘Off By Heart’ Poetry Competition on Thursday 17th October 2019.
For this competition we are asking all the children to learn one poem from the list below 'Off By Heart'. The children will be reciting their poems in class during the week and the two winning entries from each class will go through to the Grand Final.
The main focus for our younger children is the use of expression and intonation in their voices and that they enjoy themselves.
We are really looking forward to this event and we will have independent judges to help us judge the competition making the tough decisions for us!
All the poems for this year can be accessed on the website. The best way of learning a poem is not to try and do it all at once. Little and often, line by line, is often the best approach. Staff and parents are also encouraged to have a go as this will also give the children encouragement!
