We are delighted to announce that The Old Station Nursery Mottershead Drive has been selected to contribute to the publication of 'My First Poem 2020 – Creative Stars'.
At the start of February, each Pre-Schooler at The Old Station Nursery Mottershead Drive, entered the Young Writers competition of writing a poem ‘All About Me’. The nursery, which provides care for children aged 0-5 years old, were delighted to hear that all of the children’s poems submitted had been chosen for publication.
This week, the nursery received a delightful package in the mail – a copy of the publication, accompanied by individual certificates for each child.
Kelly Hall, Nursery Manager at The Old Station Nursery Mottershead Drive, commented, “We were so very proud of all the children and the amazing writing skills that they demonstrated. The children worked so hard on their individual poems and it is fantastic to see each child recognised for their hard work.”
She continued, “The children were thrilled to receive their certificates and the book this week. At The Old Station Nursery Mottershead Drive, we aim to inspire a love of writing so the Young Writers competition is the perfect challenge for all of our budding authors!”
For 29 years, Young Writers have been championing poetry and creative writing in educational settings through poetry competitions. They organise competitions catering to various age groups throughout the year.
The nursery has also been entered into an overarching nursery competition, where one entry from across the UK will win. The outcome of this competition will be unveiled later in the year.
Stay tuned for more updates as we celebrate our budding poets and their journey!
