An inter-school poetry slam held at Sheringham Little Theatre saw five north Norfolk primary schools perform self-penned work in front of a panel of judges.
Now in its second year, the project is funded by children’s arts charity Falcon, Young Norfolk Arts Festival and Glaven Valley Arts Society.
It was launched a few weeks ago with a series of workshops run by Norwich-based poet and scriptwriter Molly Naylor.
Sheringham Primary School was named best team overall, with the performance award going to Cromer Junior School, best writing prize going to to Langham Village School and best team performance handed to Holt Primary School.
Top team for writing was St Mary’s School, Roughton, who also won the ‘most imaginative’ award, while best audience reaction went to Holt Primary School. Youngsters also had a chance to quiz performance poet Luke Wright, who appeared on stage before hosting a question and answer session.
