Last week we celebrated National Poetry Day! On Thursday 6th October, the English department donned a quote from their favourite poem from the GCSE Power and Conflict cluster and treated KS3 to English lessons surrounding this year’s theme: Refuge. Pupils were then invited to write their own poem about a topic they feel passionately about and submit to the Young Writers ‘This is Me’ competition! There is still time to enter so don’t forget to hand in your entry to Miss Bartram by Friday 13th October for your chance to have your poem published in a book! There are also other prizes at stake including: £50, a trophy and certificates!
