PETALING JAYA: So you need to craft a poem for a contest. You stare at the blank page that glares back at you. No words come to mind.
Well, help isn’t too far away. Turn to The Star’s newspaper for help!
We have a myriad of words for your picking in this year’s new contest concept for primary schools.
And what’s even better? Forty-five theme park tickets to Resorts World Genting are up for grabs!
That’s exactly what teacher, English panel head Harlina Hamdan from SK Bukit Raya, Cheras, Selangor, told her pupils as they attempted the Blackout poetry contest organised by The Star.
Intrigued, pupils at the school tried their hand at creating Blackout poems.
Year Six pupil Ajda Insyrah Mohd Zaki said: “I found the task quite challenging. But when I completed my work, I was surprised and proud of myself. I’d done three poems!”
This year’s contest template for primary school pupils in Years Five and Six will once again be published in The Star’s Step Up pullout, a 24-page English language resource-cum-workbook for schools.
