Congratulations to everyone who entered our 24 Words Competition. Nearly 200 people entered which was amazing. Our judge, Ms Thurland, was looking for originality and imagination. Here are the results…

Year 9 Winner - Louis White

The door scraped like a kid killing a violin. Peter slipped into the dark street, hefting the guilty bag. There. The neighbour’s bin. Sly victory.

 

Year 9 Runner up – Skye Hockenhull

They say we have a sense, that we can feel when someone is watching us. It’s been weeks. Obviously you don’t have that sense.

 

Year 8 Winner – Sarah Groom

I look into the mirror, as I do everyday, and see myself. But this time something is different: what I saw wasn’t a reflection…

 

Year 8 Runner up – Emily Holt

A  hug from my nana and grandad. A walk in the park. Sleepovers with my cousins. One day, my dreams will come true.

 

Year 7 Winner – Lauren Jones

There was a picture of my family on the wall. I looked up to notice I was somehow strangely fading away into the background.

 

Year 7 Runner up – Ophelia Flavin

He walked along the corridor, blood dripping from his hands. His bloodshot eyes stared into nothingness. “I shouldn’t have done that,” he thought.

 

Partner Primaries Winner – Jessica Rowlands (Byley)

One day, perhaps the sun with her blazing golden hair will defeat the traitorous moon. Then the dangerous stones will be a distant memory.

 

Partner Primaries Runner up – Isabel Ashman (Wharton)

One day, wounded and stranded far behind, a revolutionary seeks shelter and aid while planning his revenge on the people who killed his unit. 

 

Certificates and prizes will be on their way to you soon. Congratulations!

 

Other particularly impressive, shortlisted stories were written by Jessica Wilde and Max Prince in Y9; Eleanor Latham and Ciaren Yates in Y8; Fleur Parsons, Graysen Crowley and Daisy Cameron in Y7; and, from our partner primaries, Ben Wigston (Middlewich), Sophie Kulak (Warmingham) and Emily Knapman (Byley).

 

Well done to you all for entering. Look out for more competitions in September.
