My pupils think po­etry con­test is best bar none

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

the Pri­mary 5 class are tak­ing their en­tries very se­ri­ously.

Teacher Jane Cowan said: “The po­etry com­pe­ti­tion is per­fect for us. It’s a huge deal for the chil­dren to be in­volved.

“I knew they would be des­per­ate to en­ter it.”

The nine and 10-year- olds had prepara­tory lessons to dis­cuss dif­fer­ent po­ets and writ­ing tech­niques be­fore putting pen to wrap­per. Jane added: “The chil­dren al­ready write po­etry in class. Try­ing to shorten their words to fill a smal l space l ike the Tun­nock’s wrap­per was an ideal ex­er­cise.

“And eat­ing a caramel wafer at the same time was the best thing ever.” For more in­for­ma­tion about our Tun­nock’s com­pe­ti­tion, see dai­ uk/Tun­nocks Po­etry. Clos­ing date is Oc­to­ber 29.
