CHILTON'S WRITING COMPETITION

Get ready to get your hands dirty! This is not for the squeamish! This week, Mr McAuley is releasing a new and exciting writing competition! On this occasion though, we are extra fortunate because we have a professional author on whose writing yours will be based. Martyn Harvey has very kindly given us special access to his hilarious poems, BEFORE they are released to the public! Every day, there will be a new poem on your blog to watch, where we will talk about his poem and his inspiration, in addition to how to draw an illustration. Finally, on Friday, when you have watched all his poems, he will announce this term’s writing competition and a poster will appear on your blog explaining exactly what you will need to do.

Enjoy the poems, and keep an eye out for the launch on Friday when you will find out exactly what you will need to do. I look forward to receiving lots of your poetic entries in the coming weeks.
