In 2015/2016 academic year we ran our ‘Sense Poetry’ competition for 5-7 year-olds.
Children across the UK were invited to send their acrostic poems in and we received an amazing 23,000 entries nationwide! Our favourite sense poems have been published and we've chosen the best poet in each book to receive a personalised notepad and a Berol handwriting pen! The school winners have also been chosen and can be viewed below.
Congratulations to our winners! Thank you to everyone who took part and to all the teachers and school staff for co-ordinating the competition too!
