Published Poets

3rd February 2020

Lots of our Year 2 and Year 3 pupils have had their writing talents recognised by the Young Writers publishing group who run National Writing Competitions for primary and secondary schools. Over 60,000 poems from schools across the UK were submitted and  30 of the Spaxton children’s poems were chosen to be published in regional issues of ‘My First Acrostic’ and ‘Poetry Monsters’. Every child who submitted a poem received a certificate and the selected poets also received their own copy of the book that includes their poem.

Mrs Rebecca Skews, Year 2/3 Teacher said, “All the children really enjoyed thinking about poetry and writing their own poem for the compeitiion and of course, they are now all very proud to be proper published poets!”
