Off the Shelf competition for schools
Attention all schools...
Off the Shelf is running a competition for schools in conjunction with the Sheffield Star as part of their Reading Campaign.
The competition challenges young people of primary and secondary school age up to 16 to submit videos of themselves performing a recital of their favourite poem or piece of prose by Michael Rosen, one of the most well-known figures in the children’s book world. These can be done at home or at school.
Renowned for his work as a poet, performer, broadcaster and scriptwriter, Michael has been involved with over 140 books and anthologies, and was selected as the Childrens’ Laureate between 2007 and 2009. Some of his most celebrated works include ‘Don’t Put Mustard In The Custard’, ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ and ‘The Zoo At Night’ – but you can pick any section from any of his children’s books and poetry collections to perform.
There’s still time! Please enter your video performance to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Wednesday 18 October.
