English - Poetry Competition

In the Autumn we wrote our own poems based upon a photograph for a Competition that Fulwood Academy were running. We spent a lot of time thinking about the language to use within our poems and we were sure to include as many poetic techniques as possible. 

Out of all the primary schools in Fulwood, one of our pupils in Year 5 won the competition. Their prize was a £50 Amazon voucher.
