We know how fantastic our children are at writing and so it's only fair to share this with Nottinghamshire.
Nottinghamshire Board of Governors are holding a writing competition, open to children from 5 years to 13 years.
As their homework, we are asking the children to write a story. They should develop their own ideas, clearly identifying characters, plots and settings, using rich vocabulary. The word count is as follows:
Years 1 and 2: 200 words
Years 3 and 4: 400 words
Years 5 and 6: 500 words.
The closing date for entries is Tuesday 7th February 2017. We ask that children hand in their work to their class teacher as soon as possible.
Any queries, please ask the class teachers or Mrs Wallis.
