There was an excellent level of response to the Friends of Pinewood Poetry Activities Challenge over the Easter Holidays.
Children in Years 7 and 8 were asked to read 21 poems and respond to them in a variety of ways. This year saw some promising writing from many of the pupils, and some beautiful artistic responses to some of the poems.
Of the responses we received, 11 pupils handed in exceptional work, and of those, after much deliberation, it was decided that those who had evidently made the most original and intelligent responses, and engaged with all the poems most thoughtfully were Melissa W, Sophie V and Caitlin F. The other 8 to be highly commended are Fred D, Seb W, Rosa H, Eli B, Georgie V, Lottie J, Hattie S and Amelie J.
Many thanks to Friends of Pinewood, who have kindly sponsored this event, enabling us to provide book tokens for the winners, and some notebooks for all who participated well.
