National Poetry Day Event

Another Video Conference event - you may have missed the details for:
This also comes to me from Mina Patel

Hello again everyone, you may have heard about this Video Conference from Brian too.

However once again I hope you are able to forward this message onto your Literacy/English advisors KS2 and KS3/4 and to schools who you know may wish to take part. The schools could take part in the poetry writing competition only if they wish, or just the Video Conference, or take part in both.

National Poetry Day - October 9th 2008 – London Event (and Competition!) by Videoconference hosted by Havering LA

LGfL partnering with Havering LA would like to invite you to take part in this National Competition. The theme for this year’s National Poetry Day is `Work`. So in order to celebrate this, we would like children to write poems about different jobs. We are delighted that authors Alan Peat and Gervase Phinn have been secured to judge the finalists. Deadline for handing in competition entries is September 30th.
Please visit this link to read about the prizes and rules:

We would also like to invite you to take part in a videoconference for primary and secondary schools during National Poetry Day, on October 9th 2008, starting at 8.50 am and ending at 3.15pm. Please visit www.poetryday.lgfl.net to see the programme for the day.

Schools do not need VC equipment to take part, just the school’s internet connection, to watch and participate in the online forum, so please register at: http://www.lgfl.net/lgfl/accounts/forms/web/forms/poetry_booking.htm
