500 Words




Dear Parent/Guardians

Your child watched the live streaming of the launch of Radio 2’s 500 word competition today. We all enjoyed it and the children have started to come up with some fantastic ideas for their stories. They should have brought home today three planning sheets to help them with a setting, character and plot.

The children will be writing their stories in the next week or so in class, but in order for them to be able to compete; we need you to help your child submit their story. They will plan, write and edit their stories on paper and then take a copy of their story home, where we would like them to type and send them off. It is an easy process, but we would appreciate your support in this final part.

You will find the link here to show you how it is done.


Thank you for your help and we hope that you can join in with our excitement!


Kind regards
