I am especially pleased with your use of figurative language, with some excellent similes and personification used to bring the scene to life. I was also impressed with your plentiful use of fronted adverbials to craft a setting that was vivid and geographically coherent. You are a worthy winner! I hope to see more exciting descriptive writing from you in the future’.

1st place: LUCIE PEARSON
Miss Williams said ‘After looking at some very impressive entries, we have decided that Lucie Pearson is the competition winner with her superb, thought-provoking poem thanking the NHS.
We chose Lucie's poem due to the thought that she had put into each line; it was clear when judging the poems that Lucie had taken the time to look at some brief history surrounding the NHS, whilst also incorporating the relevant events that we are all facing at the moment. Well done, Lucie’.
