Mayflower 400 competition

Mayflower 400

This is an annual Plymouth writing competition, celebrating the historic sailing of the Pilgrim fathers to America. This year, the theme for the competition was “Beyond the Horizon”, and we challenged the children to write poems about the sea using this phrase. Three poems from each class, together with class poems from Oak and Elm classes, have been sent off for possible publication in the Mayflower 400 writing anthology.

On Monday, we celebrated our writing across the school with a special assembly, where the teachers read out a poem from each class. These poems can be seen on each class page.
