Alnwick schoolchildren inspired to write in live-radio lesson
Pupils at St Michael's CE Primary School in Alnwick took part in a live lesson last week as part of Radio 2's 500-word short-story competition.
Years 3, 4 and 5 took part in what is the largest children’s writing contest in the world.
Headteacher Gavin Johnston said: “The children had great fun taking part in the 500 Words lesson and by being inspired to write from a range of children’s celebrities.
“Following on from this, the children are now writing their stories to be entered.”
