English – Creative Writing | Newsletter

At the start of teaching remotely, Mrs Bates (English department) set up a Creative Writing Google classroom to replace the club which usually ran on Mondays.  The online group included writing prompts and tips and students have been sharing their writing with each other. There are 139 students in the classroom and it’s been lovely to see that students have been writing at home.

The deadline for the Spring Creative Writing competition was the week that school closed so we have accepted online entries, awarded electronic certificates and asked for the winners to record themselves reading their writing out loud for an assembly. The Summer competition has been run exclusively online through the Google classroom and winners were announced announced in the National Writing Day Assembly.
