Calling all young writers!

For the second year running we are holding our short story competition for pupils aged 8-11. Last year we asked for stories about the change to decimal money. This time the topic is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 - which means she will have been Queen for 70 years! All you have to do is send us a story of no more than 500 words before 3rd December 2021 and you could see your story illustrated by a professional artist as well as winning a special silver coin for yourself and £5,000 worth of equipment and books for your school library.
