WRITING COMPETITION!

Hello everyone, Mr McAuley here with exciting news about the Lock-Down Writing Competition! It is the moment you have all be waiting for, who will be receiving the prizes for their efforts?

Firstly, I want to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who got involved and wrote a poem on the theme ‘Fauna’. I have never received so many entries to a writing competition before and the quality of the writing was truly exceptional; they really made me very proud to be a teacher here at Chilton. I would also like to thank all the parents who supported their child with this project, your support and kind messages were greatly appreciated.

Therefore, Martyn and I had an incredibly difficult task deciding who will be crowned winners. I’ll start by announcing the ‘shortlist’ for each Key stage. These poems really stood out and any one of them could have won. Martyn and I spent a lot of time deliberating over every one. Each of these poems will receive a small prize when you return in September.

KS1 – Shortlist

  • Sophie Furiel
  • Evie Beaumont
  • Jessica Kirkaldie
  • Freddie Elliot
  • Ned Clements

KS2 – Shortlist

  • Finn Gardner
  • Nadia Curtis
  • Finley Munsen
  • Rose and Emily Young
  • Evie Field
  • Bradley Kirkaldie

Martyn Harvey wanted me express his thanks for all of these entries, he felt all of these poems were of such high quality that they could be dropped straight into his new book ‘Bugs, Beasts and Biscuits’. All of these children will receive a small prize in September when you return.

But now to announce the winners and runners-up.

THRIVE Activities

MONDAY

English

Treasure!

Imagine stumbling across hidden treasure the next time you are out on the beach or in the woods with your friends. What would you do? Open the treasure chest? Keep it all to yourself? Hand it in to the police? Show it to your family?

I think we have probably all thought about this! Treasure or precious objects are often used in myth, legend, cartoons, books and films. This week, we will use treasure and interesting objects as the stimulus to write fantastic adventure stories with a key focus being: ‘suspense’.

Read the story attached and complete a 'story map' showing your understanding of the key events.
