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. They made their own Wordles using lots of new and ambitious vocabulary and listened to the poem ‘Beautifully Different, Wonderfully the Same’ by Joseph Coelho. They finished the unit by writing their own fantastic range of poems about diversity. Good luck to all who entered the competition.
