THE P FACTOR  2017

What is it?

The P Factor is a Beatrix Potter poetry performance competition held each year at school around National Poetry Day. 

Who is it for?

  • Any child or pair of children in Year 1 to Year 6.
  • Entrance is entirely voluntary.
  • You can write and perform your own poem or perform a published poem of your choice.

What is performance poetry?

  • Performance poetry involves saying the poem out loud and bringing it to life.
  • It may help your performance if you learn the poem off by heart but you don’t have to.
  • You will be judged on the delivery and performance of the poem.

How does it work?

  • Auditions are held in the classroom for all the children who want to take part during the week beginning Monday 25th September 2017.
  • Each class will send a finalist(s) to the live P Factor Final to be held on Thursday 28th September in the Hall at 9am in front of the whole school.
  • Back in classrooms after The P Factor Final, you will have a Voting Form with the 12 Finalists names on. You will vote for who you think should win.
  • Votes will be counted up.
  • The Winner(s) will be the child(ren) with the most votes and the Runner-Up(s) will be the child(ren) with the next highest number of votes.
  • The Winner(s) and Runner-Up(s) will each be presented with a prize, on Thursday 28th September in Whole-School Assembly.

Remember you will be judged on the performance of your chosen poem.

Start by selecting a poem and practising your performance at home!

Good luck!
