Verse Speaking Competition

This morning the JS girls recited a chosen poem in the Verse speaking competition. The girls conveyed a lot of drama and emotions through the poems and impressed everyone with how well they memorised and engaged with the audience whilst speaking.

The girls were all very supportive of each other throughout and by the end of the competition all the girls had great big grins on their faces. Definitely a proud moment for them all.

Here are the winners from each year:

Y3- Harriet Anderton- Bedtime Poem

Y4- Amelie Williams- Homework Poem

Y5- Eve Hunter- The Land of the Nod

Y6- Roisin Daly- The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The overall winner to receive The Mrs Langham Verse Speaking Cup was Y6 Roisin Daly.

A very well done to all the girls that participated!
