Grand Welsh Poem Challenge Progress
Why a Grand Welsh Poem?
Continued school closures have proven really challenging for school children, teachers and for parents who have been required to quickly adapt into the role of at-home educators.
Nanny Biscuit have created a challenge that can easily be added to your homeschool day or can be the perfect exercise to set your class as a remote learning task. It is fun and easy to do and should appeal to aspiring poets across the nation.
What is the Grand Welsh Poem challenge?
We want you to help us to create a 1000 line poem that celebrates Wales and St David’s Day! We want to offer a new, fun activity for you to participate in during the week leading up to St. David’s Day, and to hear what Wales means to you.
How can you get involved?
We encourage you to be as creative and imaginative as possible and from our submissions we will create our 1000 line poem.
In addition to helping us to write it, you will also be entered into our prize draw! We will randomly select a line from one child to win National Book Tokens for them and their school (£25 for the child, £75 for their school).
We’d also love to see photos of your creative writing! Send them in to us or share on social media and tag Nanny Biscuit and use the hashtags #grandweekinwales & #grandwelshpoem. We will share them on our social media channels and website, with the aim of showcasing the baking talents of people from all across Wales!
You could also use this as an opportunity to fundraise for Nanny Biscuit or a local charity of your choice.
All money raised for Nanny Biscuit will be used to combat food poverty and loneliness within communities across Wales; issues that have been exacerbated over the last year.
We’re very grateful to the amazing brands and organisations that are helping deliver this national event
