A young writer from Ely has won a national competition for her “wonderful” poem all about her ‘perfect world’.
Along with other Year 3 students at St John’s Primary School, Claudia Lloyd took part in the national poetry writing competition with CLPE (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education).
Her teacher, Sharon Turner, said: “We are all so very proud of Claudia.
“She worked so hard to create a wonderful poem, and her win is well deserved.”
She added that the poetry “focussed on our perfect world, and what we would choose to have in our perfect world if we could create it.

“The pupils drew what our perfect world would look like, then used illustrations to create the poems.
“There were lots of super entries across both Year 3 classes, but we were absolutely delighted when we heard that Claudia had won.
