1st Form Declamations

20 June 2018


On Tuesday 19 June, the 1st Form took to the stage for the concluding declamations event this year.  With an audience of family and friends, each boy in the year group recited a poem they had been learning and practising for the last few weeks.  Head of English, Mr David Evans, adjudicated the competition.

Pieces included The Owl and the Pussy Cat by Edward Lear, I Think by Michael Rosen and It Wasn’t Me by Steve Turner.

It was a difficult decision for Mr Evans to choose a winner as all boys did extremely well and at an incredible standard for their age.  However, it was Bertie D with There’s a Dinosaur Behind You by Graham Denton who won first prize.  Bertie was commended for expertly bringing out the humour in the poem with his clear delivery.

In second place was Harry L with The Crocodile by Roald Dahl and Anand N with The Most Important Rap by Roger Stevens came third.  Special mention went to Elliot T with his well accomplished delivery of Poppies by PA Ropes.

All the declamations finals are now over and we look forward to the competition starting again next year.
