Year 6 Story Competition

Dear Parents,

The children in Year 6 have been busy writing short stories as part of our short story unit in English.

This unit ties in with the BBC Radio 2 ‘500 Words 2018’ Story Competition, details of which can be found on the following link:

If you would like to enter your child’s story into this competition, your child will need to type up their story at home and you will need to follow the links provided on the website to submit their story for the competition. We have provided all children with copies of their stories from their English writing books.

If your child does not have access to a computer over the holidays and you would like their story submitted to this competition please ask your child’s teacher about alternatives.

The deadline for submitting your child’s story to the competition is 7pm on Thursday 22nd February 2018. Prizes for the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be books.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Puddephatt and Mrs Babes
