Sarah Brennan Poetry Competition Winners

Before Christmas pupils in Year 3 entered Sarah Brennan’s Poetry competition. Children had to submit a Christmas poem to Sarah who was looking for excellent vocabulary, interesting imagery, originality, great spelling and grammar and of course poems that made her smile!

There was a grand total of 94 entries in the competition, from 15 different schools in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Melbourne and New Delhi. Sarah was really impressed by all the entries from our school and selected four of our students as her winners: Ben Hanson for 1st place and Joe Crawford, Abhay Ramnarayan and Curtis Zhou as runners up.

Read her comments and our students' poems below...

Ben Hanson

"Ben’s poem was one of the shortest entries I received, but proves that you don’t have to write a lot of words to create an effective poem! I loved the imagery and the successful internal rhyming pattern. Well done Ben!"

Christmas

The moon is bright and the sleigh is light.

Santa and the elves have everything off the shelves.

People are singing carols and the elves are moving barrels.

 

Joe Crawford

Chocolate is yummy,

Hot fire in the chimney,

Reindeer are coming,

Igloo making,

Santa and elves,

Time to have fun,

Making snowmen,

Amazing gifts,

Singing Christmas songs.

Curtis Zhou

"This little gem from Curtis, did make me laugh with this funny entry!"

A little chubby snowman stood up nice and tall,

With two little grape eyes that come from the mall.

A bunny came along,

Looking for some lunch,

Took the grapes,

“Nibble nibble nibble”

“Crunch!”

Abhay Ramnarayan

The floor was bright ice,

And the children were feeling fun and nice.

Snowflakes were flying around,

The whole place was quiet not a sound.

The Christmas trees looked extremely bright,

And the children were waking and turning on the light.
