Meet Our National Poetry Day Competition Winners
Congratulations to the winners of our October National Poetry Day Competition: George in Year 7 and Micah in Year 8.
This year’s theme was 'vision'. Inspired by their English teacher, Ms Tsiknaki, the boys used the texts they are currently studying to look at the world in a different way and create two very powerful poems.
George has been reading Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo and wrote from the perspective of a young man away from home facing the horrors of war. Micah took on the character of Iago from Othello and captured the essence of this villain in a fantastic rap.
Well done boys!
