For the National Poetry Day earlier this month we composed poems on the theme of stars. The entries were judged by a school panel of English expert. Mounts were particularly successful in the Year 5 competition:
Lizzie’s poem ‘ I have to Write a Stupid Poem’ was Commended by the judges https://mountsbridgewater.wordpress.com/2012/10/10/a-different-approach-from-lizzie/
Evie’s ‘Sun, Moon, Jupiter Revealed’ Was Highly Commended https://mountsbridgewater.wordpress.com/2012/10/10/star-moon-jupiter-revealed-by-evie/
Here is Alex’s winning poem:A Star is A star is a blazing light in the sky, Glittering, twinkling. A star is a shiny golden coin Bouncing in the Mediterranean sands. A star is a blustery light in the sky, Glowing brightly. A star is found in a trapdoor in the sky, Beaming down. A star is a peace of rock, Fired from a catapult, Into the darkness above.
