Eisteddfod 2021

This year we will continue to run our annual Eisteddfod, performance poetry competition. Children should choose a poem to learn by heart and practice performing this, using a loud, clear voice, expression and with gestures and actions if possible. We have provided some suggested poems based on our Spring term topic which you can use, or you are free to choose your own poem of a similar length (or children may write their own poem!) 

Class rounds will be held on 12th February, where all children will have the opportunity to perform their poem to the class. Winners will be selected and put forwards to the final which will be held on 4th March. If the COVID situation has not improved by then, we will use zoom for the finals.  

Below is a list of year 1 common exception words.
