ISA UKS2 Poetry Competition

Posted on: 10 Dec 2020 by Weston Green School

ISA UKS2 Poetry Competition

Presented by the International Schools Association, UKS2 children were invited to participate in this exciting competition.  This year’s competition was themed around climate change and the children were asked to write a poem with the title EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE.

The competition was judged by Miss Baynham , Head of English, and Mrs Evans.  When it came to the judging stage, the panel were looking for effective images, innovative use of form, creative command of language and interesting takes on the theme.

“The quality of the poems submitted this year on the theme of climate change didn’t make the judging easy for myself or Miss Baynham”, said Mrs Evans. Miss Baynham commented that the children's work was imaginative and they enjoyed reading and discussing them. 

A warm congratulations to the overall school winners, who are as follows:

Arabella Burns

Kiara Duffy

Charlie Watson

The positive impact of the competition was that it encouraged a poetry buzz in UKS2 during morning time and it helped the children see that writing supports their creativity with language. A big thank you from me to all of the pupils who entered the competition, to whom I now say: Keep on writing!

Watch this space to see if we have a winner for the ISA.
