MFL Poetry Success

Trisha and Sophie - MFL Poetry competition Winners
Trisha and Sophie – MFL Poetry competition Winners

We are delighted to announce that Sophie H and Trisha S won the KS4 category of  the Mother Tongue Other Tongue competition at a National Celebration of the MFL poetry event at MMU.

Trisha and Sophie have been invited to read out French poems which they wrote and entered for the competition at MMU. We were only allowed to enter four poems, so to have two being read out and winning awards is a great achievement.  The students wrote their poems unaided.

They were interviewed by That’s Manchester TV, and were very impressive by the natural way they talked to the interviewer.  As is to be expected, Sophie and Trisha were a credit to the school in their behaviour and in what they said to people during the proceedings.

See below the interview on That’s Manchester TV news (There is a bit about book benches first – the poetry starts at about 1 min 5 sec):
