National Young Writers Award

An exciting opportunity has arose, our pupils have been invited to enter the National Young Writers Award competition, which is an exciting creative writing competition that the children can enter to boost their literary skills and win some amazing prizes in the process. This year’s theme is ‘Everyday Heroes’ and pupils must write up to 500 words about the theme and compete against children from all over the country with their writing.

The prizes this year include a family trip to Disneyland for the winning child, £500 worth of books for our school and a VIP visit to present the award by the guest judge this year, David Walliams!

Our KS2 pupils attended an assembly last Thursday, delivered by representatives from Explore Learning who are running the competition, the assembly focused on what makes a hero. After this, pupils who had registered an interest in the competition were invited to attend a workshop which looked in more depth at what a hero is and what talents they have, it aimed to get the pupils creative juices flowing.  

Even though the assembly was aimed at KS2, the competition is open to all year groups. All entries are to be handed in by Monday 16th April. We hope to see lots of our pupils getting involved as it really is a wonderful opportunity.
