Poetry Festival 2018

Posted on November 26, 2018

The Woodside Academy held its annual poetry festival week between the 12th and 16th November.  All the children across the school were invited to learn a poem to perform to the rest of their class.  Classes held their own ‘in class’ performances that were enjoyed by all the parents who came to watch; there was much laughter and applause heard around the school throughout the week!  Two finalists were selected from each class who then performed their poems in front of a bigger audience at the Poetry Finale assemblies on Friday. 


The standard was impressively high from all the performers but eventually the judges managed to pick one winner per year group. A huge thank you goes to everyone who supported this event.  Well done to all the finalists and special congratulations to the winners: Sophie, Sarah, Jessica, Oliver, Gabriel and Alicia - we have some extremely talented poets and performers here at The Woodside Academy.
