Mayflower 400 Poetry Competition
2020 will see the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrim Fathers leaving Plymouth on their voyage aboard The Mayflower to America. To celebrate this important date, Plymouth City Council have asked children across the city to write poems on the theme of "Over the Horizon" which could be included in an anthology. As a school we all wrote poems linked to the unit of work we were covering at the end of the first half term. Each class teacher choose 3 which were judged by the school's English Subject Leader. 1 poem was chosen as the class winner which was read out in a special assembly and submitted to be judged for the anthology. Well done to Ella for writing the Rowan class' winning poem about fireworks.
It is Autumn, the gentle wind is blowing, the trees are waving in the cloudy blue sky,
The leaves are changing colours to green, yellow, brown and red,
Soon its going to be bonfire night when sparkly fireworks come out and pop with beautiful, golden colours,
We can roast creamy marshmallows with our wonderful family,
You can see fireworks shinning from your garden and oh how they glow,
Soon it's Halloween, when everybody dresses up as scary people.
