A Celebration of Reading in Bristol’s Primary Schools
RSVP has many volunteers in Bristol Primary schools helping pupils enjoy books and listening to them read. We thought our members would be interested in hearing about an initiative by ABLAZE which resulted in some amazingly imaginative poems.
“Ablaze ran a Bristol Primary School Poetry Competition in March 2016, asking pupils to compose a poem about reading. The publication of the final book: “A Celebration of Reading in Bristol’s Primary Schools, Intellect Books (2016), was kindly sponsored by Intellect Books .
The entries to the competition were so impressive, that it was difficult to choose the winning poems to be included in the book. However, after several rounds of judging were completed, 71 successful poems were picked out.
Below are examples of some of the successful entries:
