We are very proud to announce that nine of our year 4, 5 and 6 children have had their 500 word stories selected from the 123,400 entries and qualified for the second round of the judging. Their stories are now within the 4,500 shortlisted to the second round, being judged by another panel.
The competition asked children in the UK aged 13 and under to compose an original work of fiction using no more than 500 words. Entries were in two categories: 5-9 years and 10-13 years. With 3 prizes in each category.
Below are links to their stories so that you can all enjoy the quality of their writing too.
