Radio 2 500 Word Story Challenge

Radio 2 have launched their annual 500 word  competition which asks children in the UK aged between 5 and 13 to compose an original work of fiction using no more than 500 words. Entries are in two categories: 5-9 years and 10-13 years. Budding young writers have until 7pm on Thursday 23 February 2017 to submit their stories.  

On the website, , you will find an array of tools to inspire and help you.  We would like you to blog your story on our Year 5 blog page.  Your friends will then be able to proof read and offer advice.  Once you are happy with your final story, you may enter the competition via the link above.

As we know that this will take you some time to perfect, we will be giving you 3 weeks to complete the task.

Good luck and we can’t wait to read them.




Keep blogging!

Remember, you can blog whenever you want to.  You might want to write about ‘Cultural Diversity’ week or about something else that you have been learning about in class.  You might just want to write a blog about something fantastic you have done at the weekend.  Let’s keep our Year 5 blog current and up-to-date!  acqbK6jRi
