Poetry Recital

This Valentine’s Day Green Lane hosted its first ever Young Readers’ Poetry Competition. Led by Miss Sykes, 35 brave children performed in front of parents, carers and a panel of judges. The idea of the competition was to boost confidence, expression and spoken clarity, as well allowing children the opportunity to have a go at public speaking. Each child received a certificate for their hard work and dedication and after much deliberation, the judges awarded the following trophies:

Bronze – Another Day, Josh Foster read by Josh Coughtrey

Silver – Flowers, an original poem by Georgia Broadbent

Gold – I Love Flamingos, an original poem by Poppy O’Rourke

Special commendations:

York Maze, an original poem by William Thompson

Autumn Fires, R. L. Stevenson read by Amber Gummerson
