MONSTER OFFER: Save 20% on tickets to Jurassic Kingdom dinosaur exhibition in SheffieldPREVIEW: Jurassic Kingdom will bring dinosaurs back to life in Sheffield park this summeMrs Walker, assistant head teacher at Norfolk Community Primary School, said: “As the Jurassic Kingdom event is coming to the park just down the road from our school, we were delighted to run this competition for our Y5 pupils to take part in.
“They all did an absolutely fantastic job and we saw a real mix of contributions all exploring different styles of poetry such as haiku, acrostic and pie corbett style but Lewis’ poem really stood out.
"He blew us away with his acrostic poem where the first letter of each sentence, spells out the name of his favourite dinosaur, a Velociraptor. It really captured the interest of the reader.
“For his efforts, Lewis won a free family ticket to the event which I’m sure his whole family will enjoy. Well done Lewis!"
