Annabel, Lili & Freya win top prizes in national short story competition
Three of our pupils were selected as prize winners in a recent series of short story competitions that were open to 7-12-year-olds from across the country.
The Federation of Children’s Book Groups hosted three competitions in honour of Short Story Month in May, with renowned authors Kevin Crossley- Holland, Robin Stevens and Michelle Harrison choosing the themes Myths, Magic and Mayhem for the three competitions.
We (and more importantly the winners themselves!) were thrilled that Annabel and Lili (Year 6) won 1st and 2nd place in the Myths competition respectively.
The judges commented that “their entries really stood apart from the crowd with great use of language, description and ideas”.
Freya (Year 3) was also awarded 3rd place in the Mayhem competition, with the judges saying they “were really impressed with her story”.
Well done to all who entered, their teachers, and especially those fantastic winning writers!
