500 words writing competition – writing club entrants

Hello Year 6,

If you were part of my writing club, and you entered the 500 words writing competition, there is an opportunity for one child to take part in the virtual finals ceremony.

Sadly, no-one from NJS got through to the finals but there is still recognition for effort and entries. I, however, think all the entries were amazing! 😁

If you want to be considered for the virtual finals ceremony please email me: lynne.sherry@taw.org.uk providing consent.

As there is only one space I will need to take names and draw one out of a hat as it would be too difficult to choose one of our fabulous writers.

More details about the event will follow. The ticket must be redeemed by June 7th so please don’t leave it to late to email me.

Well done writers! I am very proud of you.
