National Poetry Day 'Off By Heart' Competition 2023


National Poetry Day took place on Thursday 5th October, and at St Richard's we celebrated all things poetry with an 'Off By Heart' competition. 


Children from Years 1-6 were invited to learn one poem from a selection off by heart to perform in the grand final in the school hall. The children had to perform their poem and captivate not just the audience, but a panel of judges.

Our amazing finalists were:

Year 1: Verity & Charlotte

Year 2: Jasna & Skye

Year 3: Blessed, Lyra & Noa

Year 4: Harvey & Gabrielle

Year 5: Monika & Benedict

Year 6: Favour & Kacey-Mae


The winners were Charlotte, Gabrielle & Favour.


A HUGE well done to everyone who took part - you were all amazing and incredible!
