Does your child like poetry?  Gateshead School Sports Partnership are running another #UNITE activity.  This week it is #WRITEUNITE, a poetry competition on the theme of a sports day. This can be about a real sports day or one your child has in their imagination!

And….there are prizes to be won!

1st prize is a £20 Amazon voucher, ten runners up each receive a £10 Amazon voucher, and there’s a whopping £350 to be won by the school that submits the most entries! All entries need to be submitted by July 8th.

You can submit an entry from home by emailing it straight to Gateshead SSP (, or send a copy of your child’s poem in to school, no later than Monday July 6th, as a photo of their paper copy or email us an electronic version, and we’ll submit it for you.

Take a look using this link or go to our school website and everything you need to know is on there for you. There’s even a famous author, Liz Million, ready to launch the competition online, and she’ll give your child some guidance and ideas to get them started.  We love poetry here at Bede, and we’d love to see your child take part.  Who knows, they may even win themselves , and school, a prize!
