Creative Writing Competitions


Creative Writing Competitions

Each term the children take part in a writing challenge that fires their imagination and allows them to showcase their writing skills.  A winner is chosen from each class or year group and these children are awarded a fountain pen.  Past themes have included an adaptation from The Borrowers, when we welcomed tiny visitors to our school and a 'Who Done It?' investigation when a staff photo was vandalized!  A book containing all the winning pieces of writing can be found in the school foyer.  Next time you are at the office, feel free to have a look at all of our amazing writing.
