Through Their Eyes gives your young writer the opportunity to step into somebody else's life and write a poem about what they imagine their thoughts, feelings and experiences are. It encourages them to exercise both imagination and empathy.
Your child can write from the point of view of anyone or anything. For example:
A character from their favourite book
The secret life of a pet
A historical figure
The inner thoughts of an inanimate object
Their idol or hero
Someone going through hardship e.g. war, bullying, poverty
Free resources are available to download, which are designed to ignite inspiration and help your child plan and write their poems, including examples from past winners and idea postcards.
This Is Me I Am... is ideal for 11-18 year-olds, but students outside this age range are welcome to enter.
