New Timeline for the CLiPPA Shadowing Scheme:

1) Download the free resources for the CLiPPA 2021 shortlisted book you would like to shadow with your class. Discover an exclusive discount on the shortlisted CLiPPA books from Peters...

2) Plan to use these resources over a 3 week period in your class between now and February.

3) Allow individuals or groups of children to choose a favourite poem from a shortlisted collection and work this up as a performance. The teaching notes will give you the opportunity to do this

4) Video the performances, reflect on these together and pick the best ones to send to the judging panel at CLPE

5) Name the video file(s) using the following convention: School Name_Year Group_Shortlisted Book (e.g. StMarysBristol_Year2_Crocodile). Email the video(s) to using a large file transfer service - we recommend WeTransfer - no later than 5pm on 11th February 2022. Make sure you complete the CLiPPA consent form and send this with your entry. Download this below. 


The Shadowing Scheme Deadline for Entries is on Friday 11th February.

Submit your entries by this date - don't miss out on your chance to win the CLiPPA Shadowing Scheme 2021.

The CLiPPA is supported by Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) and Arts Council England. This year CLiPPA has partnered with The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Our CLiPPA partner ALCS have created free Copyright in the Classroom guides for both children and teachers. These guides will help you check that you are using texts in your school correctly and fairly to those that produce them.
