2022 - 2023 Writing Competitions

May 2023

KS2 Writing Competition
This half term's Young Writers competition is called Poetry Towers for any budding poets out there.

With the King’s coronation this weekend, it’s easy to link Poetry Towers to the celebrations. Here are some ideas for you:

👑 “King Charles” or “Coronation” acrostic
👑 Ten Things Found in A King’s Pocket (inspired by Ian McMillan’s poem)
👑 A-Z celebration poem
👑 Be inspired by wildlife (as the king loves nature!)
👑 Write a narrative poem about watching the coronation
👑 Write a sense poem about your coronation experience

Poems can be hand written or typed and on the entry form (I will hand these to your class teachers) or on an A4 sheet of paper with your name, age and school name included.
Poems can be in any style but must be your own work.
Please send entries into school to Mrs Groves by Friday 19th May.

For more information please see the website:

October KS2 Writing Competition
Imagine: Through The Eyes Of... | Poetry Competition
5-11 Years

For any budding poets out there, Young Writers are inviting you to write your own poem from another point of view.

From pets and family to being homeless or an endangered species, you can keep it light-hearted or take the opportunity to tackle bigger issues and put empathy into practice. 

There are lots of additional online resources to support you at

It's National Poetry Day on 6th October - this year's theme is The Environment, why not link your poem to this? You could imagine being an animal, a tree, a piece of litter, planet Earth, etc. 

All entries to Mrs Groves by Friday 14th October 
or if you are sending your entry online yourself please do this by Friday 21st October 2022.
