Literacy Homework: Friday 7th April 2017, due in Wednesday 26th April 2017

 

Over the Easter holidays, we would like you to write a short story in your homework book for the following competition:

“For the past eight years, Explore Learning has been inspiring children to write, from the young authors in the making to those a little more reluctant. So far we’ve had over 47 million words written by children eager to win the prestigious first prize – a family trip to Disneyland Paris and £500 worth of books for their school presented! These exciting prizes are presented by our guest judge, and this year none other than Steve Backshall is taking on the role!

Each year, a new theme is created and this year’s theme is ‘The Future’. Children aged 4 – 14 are transported to the year 3017 where a lot of things have changed. They will need to consider the new buildings that have been constructed, new technology that has been invented and the fancy new transport that everyone whizzes around on. We’re looking for the best story of 500 words or fewer which is set one thousand years in the future. Enter before Friday 5 May!
