Our winning poem

Back in October, Eagles class wrote this wonderful, collaborative poem for a poetry competition run by Evans Cycles.  The judge was Sir Chris Hoy.  Our poem was chosen as the runner up!  We are very proud!  Here is the poem we wrote:

The BIG Race


I put my helmet on… click,

Ready for the start,

Feet in the pedals,

Boom boom goes my heart!


Pulse rate rising


I hear the crowds scream.

Go! Go! Go!

Faster than a flash,

I make my dash!


Wheels whirring…


Wind blowing on my face,

At the speed of light,

I pick up the pace,

Not giving up the fight!


Pedals pumping…



Zig-zagging in the zone,

I see the finish sign,

Zoom zoom,

I sprint for the line!


Lungs gasping…


I entered the race,

But now I can’t look,

The thrill of the chase,

Have I got the golden cup?


Legs burning…


I’ve won the BIG race,

This feeling is the best,

Tears rolling down my face,

Now I’m ready for a rest!
