It is great to see that our continued work to develop and extend the quality and range of our children’s writing at Greenfield is paying off. It’s exciting to see hear so many children say that they enjoy writing, when they come to see me for their house point rewards and badges. The icing on the cake was the announcement on Monday that we have two winners in the Dudley Young Writer of the Year 2018 competition. William Barron came first in the poetry section for 7-9 year olds and Torsten Penney-Philips won the non-fiction section for 10-11 year olds. Huge congratulations go to both boys for doing so well. A full report with photo of William and Torsten plus their pieces of writing will feature in next week’s newsletter.
