Ruby’s 500 Words

Huge congratulations to Year 4 pupil, Ruby, who has made it through the first round of Radio 2’s 500 Words competition.

The competition was started seven years ago, by Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans. His aim was to make children excited about reading and writing and all participants have to do is write an original story on any subject or theme in 500 Words or fewer and submit it online. If they win, their story will be read live on the radio by a superstar celebrity.

This year over 150,000 children entered the competition and Ruby is just one of 5,000 to make it through to the second round. She was presented with her certificate in this morning’s assembly.
