Knowl Hill Village Association Writing competition

 

The Knowl Hill Village Association are once again running our annual writing competition for years 1-6.  It will look slightly different this year as we all work from home but never fear- Richard Best has created a video for you to launch our story writing topic ‘Under the Sea’ to get you inspired, like his assemblies always do!

 

Task

Write a story of your choice based around the topic ‘Under the Sea’. You can be as creative as you like!

Think giant octopuses, silent sharks, warbling whales, delightful dolphins, mesmerising mermaids, sinking ships, hidden treasure…..

 

The completed entries must be typed up in Comic Sans size 12 font and ideally be no more than 2 sides of A4. These must be emailed to your class teacher (achotalia@ashleyhill.org) by Friday 22nd May. The class teacher will choose 5 of the best entries to put through to the finals for the judges to enjoy! From these five, the Village Association will choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd winner, who will all receive a prize!

 

Good luck and enjoy your creative writing! We can’t wait to read your entries!
