Off By Heart Poetry Competition 2016

 

We are proud to have held our third annual Leigh Primary School Off By Heart Poetry Competition in autumn 2016!

For this competition we asked all the children to learn one poem from the list below 'Off By Heart'. The children then recited their poems in class and the two winning entries from each class went through to the Grand Final in Jessica's Hall on Friday 18th November It was a terrific event and all the children performed absolutely brilliantly. We are extremely grateful to our three independent judges for making the tough decisions for us! Congratulations to all of the children involved and to our winners. There are lots of photographs of this event in the Galleries section of this website which can be found by clicking here.

All the poems can still be accessed on this page of the website.  The best way of learning a poem is not to try and do it all at once. Little and often, line by line, is often the best approach. You can still have a go at learning one of these. Staff and parents are also encouraged to have a go as this will also give the children encouragement!
