The LRC National Poetry Day poetry competition for Years 7, 8 and 9 has launched today (Monday 22nd September).  
Students are asked to write an original poem in their own words on the theme of ‘Remember’ or the national theme for 2014 of ‘Remembrance’. Students must hand their poem to a member of the LRC staff by the Friday 24th October.

The theme of ‘Remembrance’ ties in with World War I commemorations this year.  The British Library has launched a website designed for secondary school teachers and students:
