Recently, the whole of Davyhulme Primary took part in the 3rd annual Choral Poetry competition. Each class, from Reception to Year 6, had to learn and perform a poem as a whole class and be as creative and interesting in the way they perform it. Arrangements, props and use of voice, body and volume were all factors when it came to judge the competitions.
Both the KS1 and KS2 competitions were incredible! The standard of performance from every class was fantastic!
As the new curriculum starts in September, there has never been such a big focus on poetry, so it is nice to know that as a school we massively value poetry through competitions like this!
Here are some of the performances, unfortunately due to the iPad running out of storage some poems weren’t recorded and others are cut short but we did try our best –
