The Rhyming Biz – Poetry Quiz
Thursday 2nd May
Poetry Day Ireland event. This is a table quiz for 5th or 6th class school groups. The participating class is divided into teams which then compete to answer poetry/rhyme-related questions and solve rhyme-related brainteasers to earn the title of “The Rhyming Biz – Poetry Whiz”. There will also be a prize for the winning team. The aim of this light-hearted quiz is for pupils to have a fun, quirky look at poetry and exercise their knowledge but also learn something new. To book a class, schools should contact Birr Library. Booking is essential as places are very limited.
