Lower School English Competition

It has been a near impossible job to pick winners for the Lower School Poetry Competition. Senior members of staff were also called upon to help with the decision. The number of different choices for winners and commendations was testament to the superb quality of all entrants.

With much discussion and wrangling, the following decision was made:


Sahithi – 1st – loved the traditional Indian dress and your expression and matching actions.

Niamh – 2nd – for performing with purposeful intent and a good understanding of the tone of the poem.

Wilf – 3rd – for a magical location and fully thought out performance

Next week the children will be presented with their awards, alongside commendation certificates and special mention certificates in an assembly with Miss Door and Mrs Hazell. Within this assembly a second winner will be announced – The Pupils’ Choice Award.


Daniel and Emilia – for awesome team work and expression as well as being topical and emotive.

Martha – for an original composition that is both topical and close to her heart.

Miho – for a great costume choice, expressive tone and appropriates actions
