Healthy Heart Poetry 2015

The aim of the Healthy Heart Poetry initiative is to encourage interest in lifestyle that helps to keep the heart healthy. This was established as a partnership with the healthy heart charity the Cardiovascular Research Trust. 

We thought that writing poems on keeping the heart healthy and planning and heart health writing recipes for  would form excellent themes for a school lesson on a number of subject areas.

There is no charge for entry.
