Off By Heart Poetry Competition 2017

 

We are proud to announce the launch of our 5th annual Leigh Primary School Off By Heart Poetry Competition!

For this competition we are asking all the children to learn one poem from the list below 'Off By Heart'. The children will be reciting their poems in class and the two winning entries from each class will go through to the Grand Final in Jessica's Hall on Friday 1st December 2017. These are always terrific events and all the children always perform absolutely brilliantly and we are extremely grateful to our three independent judges for making the tough decisions for us! There are lots of photographs of last year's event in the Galleries section of this website which can be found by clicking here.

All the poems for this year can 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!
