The Poetry Bus 2024
Poetry Competition | Ideal for ages 4-7
Get pupils inspired to write amazing poems by hopping on board The Poetry Bus!
Next stop: A classroom full of confident writers!
This fun activity is the perfect way to introduce your pupils to the easy-to-teach poetry styles of acrostic, riddle or sense poems. There's an activity and PowerPoint for each one, available to download to make your lesson planning a breeze, along with a host of other free resources all in the Downloads tab.
The open theme means you can link it to your class topic or allow pupils to write about whatever inspires or interests them. (You are welcome to enter using any poetry style!)
Crafting poems for the chance to be published in a book gives pupils a real purpose for their writing, making them eager and excited to write.
Request as many entry forms as you need to get your whole class involved and we will post them out to you free of charge. Every entrant will receive a bookmark and sticker for taking part, and those chosen for publication will also receive a certificate of merit.
The school prize is a magnificent poetry book bundle which includes a copy of each book in the photo. A huge thank you to Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, Dunhill Clare Publishing, Faber & Faber, Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, Hachette Children's Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Pan Macmillan, Quarto Kids, The Emma Press, Troika Books, Usborne Publishing Ltd & Walker Books Ltd for donating these wonderful poetry books that are an incredible asset to any school classroom or library!
We can't wait to read your pupils' poems, so hop aboard the Poetry Bus today!
