New Summer Writing Competition!

Dear Everyone,

The Summer writing competition is announced!!

The theme this time is “Me and my pet.”

Please write a story, a poem , a diary entry or anything at all to tell me all about how special your pet is and what he or she means to you.  If you do not have a pet, please write an imaginary piece of writing about what your favourite pet would be like or even a persuasive letter to convince your parents to buy you your favourite pet! In the Summer Term, we are having an RSPCA day because you told the School Council you wanted to raise money for animals and we will learn all about how to care for our pets, so this is a great chance to write about them!

Remember, the rules are the same: share your writing with your class members and choose the best entry for your class. Please give your writing to your class teacher by Thursday 23rd April.I will lead a whole school assembly on Thursday 30th April announcing the winners and those lucky winners will share their writing on your class blogs and choose a prize from the magic basket!

I can’t wait for you to share your ideas , look out for the posters around school to remind you and happy writing!

Mrs Marks

Writing Competition

Hi Everyone,
I have some exciting news! I am launching a writing competition that I would like everyone from Year One upwards to enter.
Please write a story using this as your story starter:
It was Christmas Eve and Harry was very excited. He had hung his stocking up on the wall next to his bed and fell fast asleep. In his dream, he had thought of all the exciting things that Santa would bring him. When Harry woke up, he looked in his stocking and found nothing but a silver box. It was very shiny, with a star on the lid. He opened it to find……………
Please finish this story in the most descriptive, exciting way you can.
Please hand it in to your class teacher by Friday 5th December Your teachers or fellow class mates will choose the winning entry for your class by so that one winner from each class can read out their writing on Thursday 11th December during a special whole school assembly and they can choose their prize from the basket! It can then be written on the class blog and other children can read it from all over the world!
Each class winning entry will also be put in to a book to be kept in school to show how wonderful the writing is in our school.
Good Luck! Mrs Marks
