On Monday 26th November 19, we hosted an exciting 'More Able Story Openers Competition' for the schools in our Deanery.
One of our fantastic HLTAs, Faye Bird, also a children’s author, and Miss Hunt ran the workshop with the children, with the aim of inspiring them and extending their creative ideas by giving them some ‘tools of the trade’, so that their story openers really pack a punch and leave the reader wanting more.
The children all shortlisted the story openers and voted for their top 3. Congratulations go to the winner, Sam from Year 6 at Mount Carmel, whose piece won 1st prize. Well done Sam!
