This afternoon, children in KS2 came together for a special assembly organised by Saints Academy members, Tim Stevens and Mike Dixon.
Tim and Mike are well known to our children and they were here this afternoon to award the prizes for the school's winners of the Writing Stars Poetry Competition organised by the Premier League Primary Stars. The theme of the competition and the children were asked to write a poem that celebrates diversity.
Tim played a video of the poem 'Beautifully Different; Wonderfully the Same' which was the stimulus for the competition. You can watch this at https://plprimarystars.com/resources/diversity-poetry-competition-ks2#m-resource-1647-link
Georgia and Alexsandra were the winners, they read their poems and Mike read his. All the finalist poems will be on display in school and the winning two poems will be entered in the National Competition at the Premier League.
