Write a poem, either on your own or as a family. It can be anything to do with the lockdown and it needs to be inspiring. It can be about kindness, boredom, family, missing our friends, new routines – anything you like.
Poems will be published on our website and all entries will receive a certificate from school. We will choose the three best poems and prizes will be sent home.
Get your poetry pens out and get going!
All entries need to be sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org email before Monday 11th May 2020.
Check out the poem written by Mrs Milnes and her son, Josh.
I stay at home to help people stay well,
This lockdown down thing was as a huge bombshell.
It’s not so fun, we can’t go anywhere
But it’s a perfect chance to show that we CARE.
The COVID virus, all it does is infect
We need to stay in and show some RESPECT.
We’ve been given advice that we should all heed
There are people out there with a greater need.
I’ve given up lots to fight for the cause
My hockey career has been put on pause
But its just a break, a little transition
Playing for England, remains my AMBITION.
If you do your part it will pass real quick
Staying at home should do the trick
Enjoy yourself with your whole family
Its worth the sacrifice HONESTly.
by Mrs Milnes and Josh
