Primary 4 and I are taking part in a monthly writing competition run by the Scottish Book Trust.
The children will get a chance to write a 50 word “story” based on a visual prompt provided by the book trust.
The children should enter the “young writers” category.
I have started a creative writing course and will be taking part in this too. Why don’t you have a go?
This month is:
Write a story that features the roll of a dice.
There will be an opportunity for the children to brainstorm ideas in class and write some ideas for their story as well as begin to write it.
I would appreciate it if you could help them to apply at home when they bring you their completed piece of writing.
The website is:
and all information can be found there. There are also examples of last months winners.
Every month we will post a few entries on the website so that you can see what the children have been writing.
