Pupil commended in National Poetry Competition

Congratulations to our Year 1 pupil Lyla, who has received the ‘commended’ award in the national poetry competition ‘Poetry by Heart’.

Poetry by Heart is a national recitation competition for schools and colleges in England. Lyla learnt the poem In The Tree’s Defence by A.F. Harrold and was one of their youngest entries.

Lyla received an award from Poetry by Heart signed by Director and founder (UK Poet Laureate, and educator) Julie Blake and a letter containing personal feedback from the judging team.

This is a perfect example of how our curriculum provides national opportunities for our Tilstock pupils. This not only honoured Lyla’s commitment but will inspire and encourage others to keep learning poems by heart! Well done Lyla, we are so proud of you!
