This year Puss Bank Primary School and Nursery would like to enter the Mother Tongue, Other Tongue Competition hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University.


It is a free to enter competition open to pupils aged between 8 and 18. Mother Tongue asks pupils, who do not have English as a first language, to write about a creative poem or song in their native language, while Other Tongue asks pupils to create an original poem in a second language they are learning at school (French, German, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Urdu and Mandarin). 


Entries need to be submitted by Friday 15th May 2020. The winners for the Regional (North West) and National competition will be announced at a very special celebration event, attended by a VIP, which will be held on Thursday 2nd July 2020 at Manchester Metropolitan University, 12.00 – 3.00 (this will be confirmed nearer the time dependant on government and university guidance).


Please e mail all entries to Mrs Mallett on no later than Thursday 14th May 2020.

Happy writing
