Engage pupils with the Bible and develop their literary, scriptural and artistic gifts.
Inspired by World Poetry Day, Bible Society and The God Who Speaks have created a poetry challenge for Key Stage 2.
Engage your pupils with the Bible and develop their literary, scriptural and artistic gifts.
Personification is a powerful poetic device which is used in ‘Let the Scriptures Speak’ to inspire the use of creative imagination in writing poetry. Used since ancient times, this device allows readers to understand philosophical concepts in an accessible and creative way.
It draws us in, provides a hook and brings to life the words on the page.
‘Let the Scriptures Speak’ offers examples of Bible-based personification poetry where Scripture itself speaks! Pupils are encouraged to explore the poems to inspire their own personification poems based on the same stories and on a selection of other Bible stories.
We invite schools to submit up to five poems and will keep this invitation open.
We’ll post them here and on our social media channels.
We hope to create a book out of the best contributions next year, so get writing and find your inspiration.
Please send the five best poems by your pupils to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please follow the links below to view some examples of the poems we have received.
