Primary school pupils from Cundall Manor School are to have their work published as part of a national Young Writers competition.
Pupils from the North Yorkshire School entered the ‘Once Upon a Dream’ Young Writers competition for 7 -11 year olds, with SIX poems from the school being chosen for publication.
Cundall Manor pupils, Harriet, Tallulah, Juliet, Sasha, Violet and Josie will all have their work published as part of The Young Writers competition which is celebrating its 25th year. The competition received over 25,000 entries from across the country.
The theme ‘Once Upon a Dream’ captured the imaginations of the youngsters at Cundall Manor School with poems ranging from real-life aspirations to wild and vivid dreams.
Lesley Ratcliffe helped bring the competition to life for the children. She said: “Our pupils really enjoy exercising their imaginations and the Young Writers format is a great way for our younger pupils to engage with writing and poetry in particular.”
She added: “The theme really gave our pupils the chance to use their imaginations in a creative way and the outcome is some wonderful poetry, deep with vivid descriptions and meaning.”
The publication ‘Once Upon a Dream – North Yorkshire’ is set to be released on 28th February.
The book follows hot on the heels of the school being nominated for the Independent Schools Association National Award for Excellence and Innovation in Provision for a Junior School. To find out more about the school, or to arrange a visit call 01423 360 200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
