Robyn Chambers, Lillian Cooper and Lily Collins in Year 8 took part in the semi-finals of the SlamJam Poetry Competition in Sheffield last week. The girls were absolutely brilliant, competing against 45 other students from the region. They were the youngest there and stood out as some of the best performers.
The SlamJam organisers said in a tweet “So many powerful writers, performing their work with passion – congratulations to everyone involved. Bring on the Final!”
Mr Rinaldi and Mrs Wright accompanied them and have everything crossed as they wait to hear whether the girls have made the final. Both teachers are incredibly proud of how well Robyn, Lillian and lily performed. Great job girls and well done to the girls for representing Barlby High School with such literary prowess.
YR 8 reading list has been emailed to YR 8 parents today. Remember 'Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are'. With the current weather & the lockdown why not take sometime time to escape from it all in the pages of a book. @BarlbyEng@Barlby_Highpic.twitter.com/zXaC…
Just had a fabulous lesson with Year 8 students where they presented their own research on weapons of the First World War. Some shared slide shows with the class while others composed poetry. I couldn't get them off the meeting when our time was up! Fabulous. @Barlby_High
