500 words story writing competition

Published on Monday 11 June 2018 by Miss Taylor.

Some of the children in Year 6 took part in this year's BBC Radio 2's short story-writing competition. They worked very hard to create some gripping tales.

The stories are judged by a panel of experts, including Malorie Blackman and Francesca Simon, and are judged on specific criteria: originality, plot, characterisation, language and enjoyment.

We were very proud when Zack Blair got through to the second round with his fabulous story, 'The Lighthouse'.

We obviously have a future author in the making. Well done Zack!
