Hear the Wildverse 2013 winners!

boyYou may remember we ran a massive wildlife poetry competition with the RSPB Wildlife Explorers and Pure a while back.


You needed to write a poem on any wildlife subject you wanted – this could be about birds, mammals, icky insects, zebras, wolves or absolutely anything that comes up when you think about the wildlife.

All the poems have now been judged by Gill Lewis, the children’s author and the winner’s have been picked! The amount of entries and general standard of the poems was unbelievable and we want to say thank you and well done to all those who entered!

The winning entries were read out on Team Josh on 21st and 22nd December 2013 on Fun Kids!

But don’t worry if you missed them, here they are to listen to again!
