Poetry Competition

We often celebrate poetry within lessons at Forest Park, but our annual Forest Park poetry competition really takes things to the next level!  Children learn a poem off by heart and perform it in a class heat. One from each house then goes forward to the final to represent their house in the whole-school competition.

The National Curriculum introduced poetry recital from memory in 2014, partly as an aid to developing fluency in reading, which has a significant impact on comprehension, and partly because the then-Education Secretary believed that to learn a poem by heart is to ‘own a great work of art forever’.  

All the children have valuable public-speaking opportunities in low-pressure class environments to help rid them of nerves in later life. Our worthy winners, demonstrating wonderful fluency and excellent feats of memory were Tatton & Moreton – our first House draw!
