Wonderful Worms Poetry Competition
Primary schools across the UK are invited to take part in a Wonderful Worms Poetry Competition as part of ‘Worm Week’ from 23 to 29 March.
School children should write a poem about earthworms and illustrate it with worm related drawings or paintings. We are looking for poems that describe worms, explain how important worms are and are fun to look at and read. Please note that each school that takes part will only be allowed to submit one poem.
The Judge - Julia Donaldson
The competition will be judged by well-known children's author
Julia Donaldson. Julia has wriiten many much-loved children's books
including The Gruffalo, A Squash and a Squeeze and The
Snail and the Whale!
The winning poet will receive an indoor Desktop Wormery.
The runner up will receive an Insect Observatory for the garden.
Every school that submits a poem will receive a free worm poster.
