Our Creative Writing Competition is in full swing and many children have already submitted their stories and poems linked to the 2019 theme The Clothes I Am. Year 5 were incredibly lucky to have an inspiring workshop with poet Adisa who shared a wealth of knowledge about writing poetry and encouraged the pupils to contribute with their original ideas. We can’t wait for the influx of amazing poems from Year 5 children in the next few days! The competition deadline is 29th of March 2019.

‘ It was a fantastic workshop and I learned that through clothing you are your own person and no one can tell you what to wear. I also learnt how to write a poem that allows me to express myself.’ (Mohamed)
