In April, we invited all Mead pupils to write and submit a poem based on the Mead 7Cs (our values) as part of the Mead Poetry Competition. We were bowled over by the quality and creativity of the responses. Congratulations to Grace M from Kestrel Mead, our overall winner. Here is a showcase of some of the talent we have in our Mead schools.
The seven C’s of our Academy
They start with you, and they start with me.
Everybody individually has to take
Compassion, loyalty, patience, and fun
Should be characteristics of everyone.
Understand, pull together, be a team.
Collaborate and achieve the dream.
Commit, work hard, do your best.
Challenge yourself until you have
Be brave, resilient, have the courage to
Stand up for others – trust me it will count.
We’re equal, we’re different, we are proud.
Culture isn’t quiet, culture is loud.
Think outside the box, who can you inspire?
Find your passion, it will set your creativity
Be welcoming, supportive, demonstrate
togetherness and care
Create a community where we can all share.
Grace M //Year 5 Kestrel Mead
In our school we work
together as a team,
Sometimes we face
a difficult time
But we accept the
challenge and fulfil
We even show courage
We have imagination
in our community.
We have different
religions and beliefs.
And that is Abbey
Prence T // Year 3 Abbey Mead
I am courage
I am strong
I am brave
I am a cat that roars so loud.
I am happy
I am sad
I stand tall and shout out loud.
I have courage.
Grace P // Year 1 Knighton Mead
Coloured pencils in little hands
Rainbows leading to dreamlands
Every child has their own wings but,
All of them are blooming their own springs
This is how the world should be
Imagination is key
Vital and successful creative skills is what
we need to do imaginative things
I love art because it lets me be free
Trust and support is what we need to
create a masterpiece
You Can Be Creative And I Can Too
Aaliya // Year 5 Thurnby Mead
Creativity is the use of imagination
To make a great invention.
Out of the box, will be a way of thinking
You will be dreaming, wondering working…
Not everyone will understand you,
And it’s ok to be you!
As long as you are happy
Let’s enjoy your creativity.
