Some of the published narratives have been entered into this year’s national 500 Words Competition, run by BBC Radio 2 in which 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.
A selection of the children’s stories are on display in class and also feature below. We hope that you enjoy reading them.
