500 words competition

We are promoting the 500 words competition which is run by the BBC in school. The deadline is the end of February. Please encourage your child to enter! They could win books for themselves, books for the school and go to the party at Buckingham Palace! (Some of the Y5s came close to winning/were shortlisted last year when they entered at first school). All the information is on the website and there is a short video.

BBC 500 Words is the UK’s most successful short story-writing competition for children between 5-13 and we want your students to get involved! You can submit a story about anything! Whether a story about dragons, cars or toasters takes your fancy, simply write your short (500 words!) story and submit it!

Good luck!
