Pupils at a Clevedon primary school have been given bags full of poetry books after entering a national competition.
Mary Elton Primary School was one of the first to enter the Premier League Primary Stars poetry contest with each school involved being sent a free bag filled with books from authors including Michael Rosen and Julia Donaldson.
The books were chosen by the National Literacy Trust as a way of encouraging children’s love of poetry.
To enter the competition, year four pupils had to write a poem on the theme of resilience.
Headteacher Dean Hudd said: “We have seen huge enthusiasm and great talent in entering this poetry competition.
