(AD) Celebrities Get Writing For Premier League Writing Stars

As my readers are probably aware by now. I am fully supporting Premier League Writing Stars again this year.

Premier League Writing Stars is a competition for pupils aged 5 to 11 across England and Wales, which this year asks pupils to write a poem on the theme of diversity.

A new poem to spark their creativity has also been written specially for this competition: Beautifully different, Wonderfully the same by Joseph Coelho.

It is supported by downloadable curriculum-linked resources in English and Welsh.

Premier League Writing Stars judge and ex-Premier League Footballer Rio Ferdinand has shared his own fabulous Diversity poem called ‘United’

Rachel Riley, TV presenter, Maths superstar and Premier League Primary Stars advocate joined in the competition with…A poem that still needs a name!!

BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker has also joined in with the brilliant – Blue is not the colour.

Even the animal kingdom has joined in with a fantastic entry from Hartlepool United mascot H’angus the monkey.

I am going to pick my personal TOP 3.

No.1 – Rachel Riley with her untitled poem

No.2 – Ben Shepherd – Inspired by the outdoors

No.3 – Jacqui Oatley’s (Sports commentator and journalist) her poem focuses on – What it’d be like if everyone was the same.
