It also goes without saying that, “practice makes perfect”, which is why last week’s assembly when we had the opportunity to hear the winning poetry recitals from our EAL students, was a fantastic step in their learning and development.
All of the students have been practising poems in their classes recently and on Friday 2nd December they had their chance to present their poem to a large audience during our whole school assembly. The rest of the students and teachers heard the winners of the poetry competitions from F3 to Y6.
Poetry recitals are a great way to showcase good, spoken English. The judges were looking for clear speech and good use of the rhyme and rhythm within the poem. In addition, judges were looking for exciting actions to help make the poetry recital even more interesting for the audience!
The poems that won the competition were;
- F3: I’m a Little Tea Pot
- Y4: My Teacher Calls Me Sweetie Cakes
- Y1: My Teddy Has a Fright
- Y3: The Little Turtle
- Y2: Five Little Owls
- Y6: My Smartphone
- Y5: Please Mrs. Butler
Well done to all students who took part in the practices and the final presentation. Congratulations to the winners of the competition!
