National Poetry Day!
Today is National Poetry Day! This year’s theme is ‘Change’.
What’s your favourite poem?
Our whole Academy will be ringing with the sound of beautiful words today, as our teachers all share their favourite poems with students. As well as enjoying this feast of the finest writing, students will also have the opportunity to harness their own creativity, and enter a poetry writing competition on the theme of change.
About the day:
National Poetry Day is an annual celebration that inspires people throughout the UK to enjoy, discover and share poems. Everyone is invited to join in, whether by organising events, displays, competitions or by simply posting favourite lines of poetry on social media using #nationalpoetryday.
National Poetry Day was founded in 1994 by the charity Forward Arts Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate excellence in poetry and increase its audience. The Day enjoys the support of the BBC, Arts Council England, the Royal Mail and leading literary and cultural organisations, alongside booksellers, publishers, libraries and schools.
