Year 8 French Poetry Competition

Year 8 pupils recently took part in a a poetry competition organised by the French department. 

Pupils had been studying the poems of two famous French poets – Apollinaire and Paul Eluard – and as an extension to this they were tasked with writing their own poems for a Year 8 French Poetry Competition. 

The competition brief was to take inspiration from the two French poets, and everyone put a lot of effort into composing creative and artistic poems.  They were all noteworthy, and here are the four poems that came out on top  – Bravo, everyone!
