Explore Learning Writers Award Competition 2020!

Posted: Sep 30, 2020 by: a.roclawski on: Reading Blog

Hello all, 

I am sharing with you all a really exciting opportunity for our pupils and school. 

Explore Learning are holding a competition for young writers across the country. 

The theme his year is "hidden talents".

All your child has to do is write a 500 word story featuring a hidden talent and submit it through the link below.

The competition is open to children from the ages of 4 - 14 and is being judged by Radio DJ Greg James!

There will be a winner chosen from KS1, KS2 and KS3 - then an over all winner. 

Each winner will receive, An iPad, an Apple Pencil and keyboard for the iPad and £250 towards an experience day!

The overall winner will also receive a MacBook Pro, an extra £750 towards an experience day, a special celebrity guest visit for school plus £500 worth of books for our school library!

This competition is not compulsory. Although we would love it if a lot of the pupils took part. 

We will be sharing information and ideas about it in class to inspire everyone.

Who knows! We might have the next Roald Dahl sat in one of our classrooms right now!

Happy Writing!

Miss Roclawski
