Winter Drawing Competition

Well done to Sam from 8Ba for winning the Winter Drawing Competition.  His design will become the front cover of our book of writing, to be published by Scholastic during the Summer Term.  The book will be available to buy and I hope everyone will want to have a copy!

Book Quote Competition

The Book Fair is coming up (starting the week beginning 17th November) and as usual I am running a competition alongside it. This time I want you to find a quote from a children’s book and illustrate it. Your quotes and designs should be inventive, colourful and from interesting books. The best ones will be put onto canvas and displayed permanently in the library.

Please make sure your entry is:

A quote from a children’s book

Done in felt tip.

On an A4 sheet of paper.

And have a centimetre blank rim/frame around the edge so that the image can be stretched to fit the canvas.

The competition opens on Monday 10th November and will close on Friday November 21st.
The winner and runner up will receive £15 worth and £10 worth of books (respectively) from the Book Fair. The top 6 will be put on canvas.

Give your entries to your English teacher or to Mrs Haxell.

Good luck!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Competition

Well done to everyone who entered the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Competition.  This year we ran a competition along with the Book Fair. The idea was to create and draw a new character for the Jeff Kinney series.  We had loads of excellent entries; people had been very creative.  So it was very difficult choosing the winners.

The overall winner is:

Rosie

And the runners up are:

Emma & Ellie

Lauren

Congratulations to them all.  Rosie gets £10 worth of books from the Book Fair, and the runners up get £5 worth of books per entry.
