Poetry Competition 2022

You could take part in Poetry By Heart 2022 – the national competition for children and young people speaking poems by heart:



The website has a section for children to explore great poems that can be read out loud, and one for parents packed with ways to support your child’s love of poetry and some top tips for supporting poetry appreciation and developing their ability to perform them.

There’s a lot of fun to be had with reciting poetry.

If you sign up they’ll even send you a poem by email each week for your and your child’s enjoyment. Children can learn a poem to say by heart alone or get together with fiends to see what magic they can create together.
