A Wish For A Day
I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took time out to vote in our Writing Competition this week. The competition has sparked the imagination from children across the whole school, from Year One to Year Six. We have been so impressed with the standard of all of the entries and the time children have taken to present their work so beautifully. Deciding the final stories for voting by parents was a fantastic, but mammoth task.
We managed to shortlist down to four stories. Story A was by Jack Gi in Year 5. His was a cleverly written story about a child’s wish which ended up saving his family. Story B was by Freya C in Year 4. A story with a moral, be careful what you wish for, and how the power of invisibility isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Story C was written by Liliana D in Year 1. A lovely story about Jelly Land, a world where everything is made from jelly. Story D was written by Iyla L., Year 6, who wished for the power of speaking to the animals, which led to an incredible adventure.
At the end of the day there could only be one winner of the main prize – the private screening of Four Kids and It hosted by Jacqueline Wilson. I’m pleased to announce that Story D, by Iyla L was the winning story. One parent who spoke to me during Parents Evening just wanted to read more and hoped there’d be a next chapter!
All of the entries were outstanding and the pupils of this school always make me so proud with the work they produce.
A special thank you to Mrs Emma Greenwood for organising the prize for us and I hope Iyla's family enjoy their special day out on Sunday.
We all look forward to hearing all about it!
