500 Words

Have you heard of the BBC Radio 2’s 500 Words competition? It is “the UK’s largest story writing competition for kids (and) is back for its tenth year.” In the words of one of our students, read how Fyling Hall is getting involved . . .

At the moment, Mrs Milner is running a 500 word story club every Tuesday night where she is helping students aged 13 and under to write a story for the BBC Radio 2 500 words story competition. Last Tuesday, she got us to use our imaginations by giving us different objects to describe, used smells and photographs. She made it dark and lit a candle to create an atmosphere. She also gave us a picture to work off. We will continue to meet every Tuesday until the closing date 27th February 2020.
