When we memorize a poem, it becomes a part of us forever. This is something our Primary school pupils know very well! Our poetry recitation contest is becoming more popular year after year and our pupils are not only improving their pronunciation and memorization skills but they are also gaining self-confidence.
In January we asked all the children in Years 1 to 6 to learn one poem by heart from the ones read in class. They memorized from nursery rhymes in Year 1 to poems by Robert Louis Stevenson and Emily Dickinson in Years 5 and 6. They recited their poems to their classmates and teachers and one pupil from each Year group went through to the Grand Final which took place on 12th February.
We were amazed at the enthusiasm and high level of performance shown by every pupil. Well done!
Hats off to the winners:
• Year 1: Jaime Sebastián, Year 2: Ana Chiva, Year 3: Valeria Archilla, Year 4: Carlota Garre, Year 5: Mencía Fernández and Year 6: Almudena Heitzmann.
