Y9 Poetry By Heart Competition

Published on 14/01/21

We have decided to run this year's Year 9 only Poetry by Heart competition in a different way to usual.

We are asking Y9 pupils to send in video recordings of their recitations of one of six poems- see below- to their English teacher by Friday January 29th.

There will then be a school prize and a chance to enter the national competition which promises a trip to the U.S.A. for the winner!

Here are the key details:

  • Choose one poem from the six in the attachments below.
  • Learn the whole poem off by heart.
  • Record yourself reciting your poem in full, and send this to your English teacher via Google Classroom by Friday 29th January at 15:30.
  • Take part in this whole-year competition with your peers to become Silverdale’s newest poetry reciting champion!
  • The national winner gets the chance to travel to the US to compete there- all expenses paid!
