BBC 500 Words

Posted by Priory School

Seven years ago, Chris Evans had a dream: to get children excited about reading and writing. All children, no matter what their ability. 500 Words is now one of the most successful story-writing competitions for kids in the world: Three quarters of a million children have written a story for us over the years!

It’s very simple. Entrants write an original story on any subject or theme in 500 Words or fewer and submit it online. 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.

The school holidays are fast upon us and we’ve got some lovely activities for children to get involved in the libraries. Some are free and some have a small charge.

There are Winnie and Wilbur themed craft sessions and Chilly Billy the snowman themed creative writing sessions with ExploreLearning.

Plus look out for Ark Farm – a chance for children of all ages to meet tiny animals including tortoises, pygmy hedgehogs and more! It’s just £3 for a half hour session.

Children can also learn some cool animation techniques and create their very own mini Gruffalo movie, also just £3 per child.

Finally if you’re looking for a pantomime – look no further than The Curve – performances from 16 – 23 December f Aladdin with HA Events (who did last year’s Sleeping Beauty!

Well done to the 9 children who made up three Priory boccia teams pariticpating in a competition with 30 teams from Slough in the Slough Schools Network Boccia competition held at Westgate School.

Team 1 performed well stunning other teams with tactical play managing to win over half of their games and being gracious in defeat.

Team 2,  Made up of Eryka, Ali and Farrelle  did outstandingly  well managing to win all but one game making it all the way to the final out of 30 teams, every game was played in great spirit and the children tried their best throughout the morning and demonstrated some outstanding skills, you should all be so proud.

Team 3: also had a great morning demonstrating skills they had developed in PE with Mr Woodruff to stun opposition players with excellent sending skills throughout the morning.

An excellent all round performance from all involved.
