Y6 @ Poetry Slam 2018
Last Thursday morning, Year 6 were invited over to High School to participate in a Poetry Slam competition with Year 7.
A slam is simply reciting the poem with a little charisma, charm and production value, so as to engage the audience.
This is the first time we have joined in this event, and it proved to be a real success! The theme was 'All About Me.'
After a few weeks of analysing, reading, creating and practising reading poems aloud to an audience, each Year 6 class chose one person’s poem to be their finalist. This was an onerous task, as all the children had worked so hard on creating their individual poems. The finalists from Years 6 & 7 each performed their poem in front of the other children over at the main event which took place in the High School Auditorium. The judging panel was made up of students from both year groups. We were extremely pleased with all the performances- the children should be so proud of themselves. After some difficult deliberating by the judges, they decided that Alesha (6L) was the runner up for the year group, and she received a book voucher for 200B. The overall Year 6 winner was...AJ (6G), who received a 500B book voucher. Well done to all of Year 6 poets for their hard work in composing their poems.
