BBC 500 Words Competition
In January and February 2017, for the second year running, Year 5/6 participated in the BBC 500 Words short story competition. They:
- read examples of good stories and analysed their features.
- Highlighted good vocabulary to steal.
- Identified different lengths of sentences and use of clauses.
They then used this information to create their own story from an unsual perspective, before editing them as a group, typing them up and recording themselves reading whilst using intonation.
