Poetry by Heart Champions 2021

Congratulations to: Martha Green (1st Place); Freya Smith (2nd Place); Charlotte Prior (3rd Place); Holly McDowall (4th Place) and Lea Reynolds (5th Place). 

To celebrate National Poetry Day on 7th October 2021 a (virtual) Poetry by Heart competition was held for students in year 8. Performances were scored for their voice, understanding, presentation and accuracy. Mrs McDonald said ‘the performances that we received from students in year 8 were brilliant, it made for a tough judging process.’

Mrs Seed presented the awards during assembly and the top three finalists also gave moving performances of their recitals before the medals were presented.

Congratulations to our winners. 1st place: Martha Green. 2nd place: Freya Smith. 3rd place: Charlotte Prior. 4th place: Holly McDowall. 5th place: Lea Reynolds. Clips of the winning performances are available on the twitter page for the library @FcjUpton

Our incredible top 5 students will be working with Mrs McDonald to prepare their entries for the national Poetry by Heart competition where they will represent our school.
