Congratulations to the 29 children from 6 BLC primary schools who took part in our Poetry semi-finals. What amazing children we have in our schools! The standard was incredible and children had written such moving poems to give us all Hope as we manage our lives now and going forward. It was incredibly difficult to choose which children go through to the final, but the final 12 poems have been chosen and the final will take place next Thursday, with special guest judges Benna (soon to be Lambeth’s Poet Laureate) and Adisa (who has led some inspiring work in our schools over the last few years). We look forward to sharing the poems in this blog, in due course.
