500 Words Reminder – LHPSN loves Writing


Entrants need to write an original story on any subject or theme in 500 Words or fewer. If they win, their story will be read live on the radio by a superstar celebrity…like Julie Walters, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Jeremy Irons, or Sherlock himself – Benedict Cumberbatch. Each year, 10 million Radio 2 listeners hear, read and love these stories. Alongside the main competition, we will also be running an internal competition at school to celebrate the entries from our children. The top 3, as judged by the staff, will receive a prize at school. However, I cannot promise celebrities like the main competition! The deadline for the entries to be submitted is the 22nd February, which is on the Thursday of half-term. Submissions must be electronic. Mr Brewer has set up a school submission account so he can submit the entries for the children in addition to them having time in half-term to produce their piece. When the writing is finished and word processed, please email the document to 500words@lickeyhills.worcs.sch.uk.
