Year 4 pupils are taking writing poetry to a whole new level by producing their very own poems in French! Oakhill is taking part in the national Laureate Education Project, Mother Tongue Other Tongue. This competition is officially endorsed by Malala Yousafzai, youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner and education activist.
The pupils have taken their inspiration from their own personal passions and so submitted poems on a variety of topics, ranging from sport to animals to food. The entries included Haiku poems, acrostic and rhyming poems and we have been very impressed with the standard achieved.
All entries were judged by MFL staff and four have been chosen to go forward to the North West finals. We wish a very excited Jamimah, James, Olivia and Ella the very best of luck and can’t wait to hear how they progress.
