The Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award, CLiPPA is the only award for published children's poetry in the UK. The award is presented annually and the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education would like your help. They are inviting schools to join the shadowing scheme for the 2018 award. Participating in the scheme gives children the opportunity to read, write and perform poetry over a three week period. CLPE will provide you with all the resources you need.
As the award is now celebrating its 15th year, every school participating in the shadowing scheme can apply for class tickets to the Poetry Show and Winner Announcement at the National Theatre, London on 14 July 2017. Contact CLPE to find out more or to get involved.
