Premier League Primary Stars Writing Competition

Premier League Primary Stars Writing Competition

Year 5 recently took part in a Premier League Primary Stars Writing Competition to write a poem all about diversity. They began by working in small groups to create their own goal celebrations, and then watched some videos and took part in discussions about diversity.
