Writing Competition

Inspired by a book I read during half term, where a fig tree is one of the main characters, I am delighted to announce that the Warrender writing competition this year is on the theme of trees.  Please watch and listen to  my recording of story by Anna Smithers, Tree Full of Wonder on School Story. This will give you some ideas and inspiration for your writing. This beautiful image of a rainbow tree may inspire you too. 


You have free reign on your choice of genre, but it should be on the subject of trees.  You could choose to write a poem, story or research and produce a piece of non fiction.   


Your work should be handwritten and given to myself in Oak Class.  You may include illustrations. Don't forget to write your name and class at the end.  Winning entries will be published in the Christmas edition of Blue News.  Prizes will be given to the winners and runners up in the three categories; reception to year 2, years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6. All entries will be displayed on our Celebrating Writing board in school. 


Have lots of fun with your writing. Remember a good writer does not complete on their first draft, plan your ideas, write with freedom and then edit your work for your vocabulary, spelling and punctuation. 


I very much look forward to reading your entries and if you have any questions please come and find myself or our school Ambassadors Harper and Ella in Oak Class. 


The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 6th December.
