500 Word Short Story Live Lesson

BBC Radio 2 500 Word Story Competition 250wAll P6s are going to be involved in this - it is open to all ages so there may well be other year groups taking part too. It is a 500 word short story competition, launched by Radio 2. I think lots of parents will hear Chris Evans talking about it on the radio in the car on the way to school or work.

Sophie who asked the question, which was featured in the live lesson said, "it was a real surprise when my question was read out. We were really shocked and had to watch it a few more times just to make sure it was mine. The whole class cheered! We wondered why they picked our question. Thousands of people must have emailed questions and only three were read out. Mine was the third one. Our class can't wait to get started on our entries for the competition."
