We are taking part in the 500 Words Competition this year. Our eight year old is in the middle of writing her own story. I am hoping to take part as one of many judges, who will be reading some of the children’s stories.
There are two groups: 5-9 and 10-13. Every child writes a story containing 500 or less words. The deadline for sending in the stories is 8th of March. Find out more about 500 Words 2019 on Radio BBC 2. You can also find lots of useful learning resources there. And if you feel competent enough, you can sign-up for becoming a judge.
