Premier League Writing Stars Poetry Competition

This year, as part of the Primary Stars programme, we asked year 6 pupils to write poems based on the theme of diversity, for both a local and national competition. J4 wrote their poems using inspiration from the poem written specially for Premier League Writing Stars, ‘Beautifully different, Wonderfully the same’ by Joseph Coelho. The poem and subject encourage us to think of ways to celebrate similarities and differences that bring us all together, as a society, and these are themes that ran through this programme.

Three St. Winefride’s pupils, Jake Hopkins, Martha Nicholls and James Lister were selected as winners by judges for the local competition, run by Shrewsbury Town Football in the Community. As a prize, the children have been invited, as special guests, to watch Shrewsbury Town FC vs AFC Wimbledon on Saturday 2nd March. As well as attending the game, the winners will be presented with a special prize at half time. Well done Jake, Martha and James!
