Success at Oundle Festival of Literature

A huge congratulations to one of our Year 5 students who won first prize in the Year 5  & 6 poetry competition at Oundle Festival of Literature.

The finalists in the writing competition came from eight local schools and they were invited to an event on Saturday 7th March, with author M.M. Vaughan entitled Tips for Young Writers. This was a very informative event enjoyed by all and then the eager finalists were presented with certificates, book tokens for the 1st and 2nd places and Easter Eggs for everyone, kindly donated by Waitrose. 

Well done, we are all so proud of you!

Here is her winning entry:

Us Humans

In the future I can see,
A crumbling building that belonged to me,
My house is now a pile of rubble,
All because the robots were causing trouble.

Water is scarce, food is in ration,
Everybody’s emotions have a lot less passion,
My troubled mind is bending,
I think the world is ending.

I rethink this thought,
The villains that have done this must be caught,
I’m being driven round the bend, I think about this more and more,
Then I realized who caused this horror

It was us humans!

We humans are selfish,
Just think of all the fish,
We have dragged from the sea,
But if my friend was asked to help save our earth, she’d say: No, no not me!
