In connection with my previous post about the 500 Words Writing Competition, the BBC Radio 2 website has a few really interesting videos and tips on how to be a good, and imaginative, writer.

Phoenix is at school right now, but I’ll be sure to share this with him when he comes home.

Excited to see what he can produce.

Perhaps I’ll post it when he’s done ๐Ÿ™‚



500 Words Silver Winner (Age 8)

Today, I read about Radio 2’s 500 Words Competition. In this competition, children are encouraged to write a story of no more than 500 words.

Some of the entries were fantastic. I especially liked the very creative way this one story (see link) described the problem of having a stammer.

Great work!

There’s a link here for anyone else who’s interested in what our little ones can do when given the chance.
