Poetry by Heart
To commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, the 2016-17 Poetry By Heart competition featured a Shakespeare Sonnet recitation competition that was open to all students and teachers in schools across the country.
Will Hypher 9B won the in-school competition and I'm so pleased to report that he has just received a commendation from the competition organisers.
Many congratulations Will, and well done to all those who took part in the competition in school.
But why commit to learning a poem?
It's a challenge and everyone can join in.
A new way of engaging with Shakespeare.
An opportunity for learning new methods and sharing enjoyment of poetry.
A key method for 'closed-book' GCSE exams.
Poetry is for life and not just for set text public examinations.
Keep learning and reciting!
