Anthony Browne’s Story Writing Competition

For the launch of our “Book by Book building our library together” campaign in March the children watched a short video from the renowned children’s author Anthony Browne who talked to them about his love of reading and his passion to write storybooks.

The link to this film is on our website, go to the page called “Anthony Browne’s Story Writing Competition” and click on the link.
The whole school watched the film again on Monday 23rd April in assembly to launch Anthony Browne’s Children’s and Parents’ story writing Competition.

He explained about a recent book he has written called “Willy’s Stories” and outlined how on each page Willy enters the doors (to a library) and then he has an adventure….will be get caught hiding in the barrel by the pirates? Or will he survive getting sucked up in a tornado and where will be land?

Then, in the video, Anthony showed the children the page of Willy on a desert island where he knows there is no one around. Anthony goes on to say one day Willy finds…. a footprint in the sand.

“I was sure there was no one else on the island. I was stunned.” Willy says. “Was it real or imaginary? Whose was it?”

The competition is to write and/or draw to finish the story… will you finish your story?

Please place your named entries into the white box in the school entrance (also adding your class) by the deadline of Friday 11th May. The winners will be announced (one per year group and on to parents) on Thursday 24th May.

Good luck!
