We are very proud that islam from Year 6 has been nominated by two people for the 100 word challenge showcase this week. The quality of the writing overall for this week was very strong and we are proud of all the students who submitted stories. Keep up the great writing!

100 word challenge for this week

We have a mystery to solve this week!

Things to think about:

  • Where are you?
  • Who is this?
  • What has happened?
  • What can you do about it?

This week I am looking for entries that are complete stories (NO “to be continued…”) and in particular I want to make sure that each sentence is completed with correct punctuation, especially capital letters and full stops.


Can’t wait to see what you come up with so get writing…!

After a long break, it’s back!

This is this week’s challenge, posted from the website –

I’m told that the fine individual word prompts are the favourite types for many of you.

Maybe your class would like to suggest some for me to use. Check the email address in the newsletter and send over your suggestions!

Here are the words for this prompt. Don’t forget they must ALL be in your writing but can be in any order:

…however, yellow, gingerly, discovered, remarkable…

What will you be able to do with these words? My challenge to you is to try a new genre of writing – maybe a diary entry or a newspaper report or an article would suit these words.

I encourage you to write something different (and no more “to be continued…” today – try for a piece of writing that has a resolution of some kind).

to binmy, from Class 6,  whose writing was chosen by a teacher from another school in a different country to be part of the 100 word showcase. This means his 100 word entry was judged one of the best from across the world for that week. Well done! We are so proud of you (and keep up the great writing!)

This week’s challenge:

It was really exciting to log onto the blog and see comments from all over the world for many of our stories this week, including some of our Board of Governors Members.

For the first time since we have been participating in the 100 word challenge, one of our Year 6 stories has been nominated for the Showcase so we will have to wait to see if it is chosen to be displayed on the website.

We have another segment from a sentence for this week’s challenge. It is:

…as I turned round it changed shape …

Things to think about:

  • What is ‘it’?
  • What shape should it be?
  • What shape did it turn into?
  • Why was this happening?
  • The form on the 100 word challenge site will close on Saturday 10th December, so your stories need to be finished by Friday so I can upload them in time to be considered for the showcase.

First week of 100 word challenge!

Class 6R have completed their first 100 word challenge today. This week’s prompt is  part of a sentence- “…as the smoke cleared…”. Have a look at what they wrote based around this prompt.

We also enjoyed adding our first comments about each other’s writing – perhaps you would like to comment too? We welcome positive feedback!

(Also, check back over the next week as more blog entries are published.)

After some IT teething issues our new bloggers have their first entry this week and it’s all about Gorsefield.  We look forward to seeing some comments coming in over the half term about what they have written.

Welcome to our blog for 2016, Year 6 students

Welcome Class 6R!

Your task today is to put a new entry onto our blog about our amazing school journey to Gorsefield and Cambridge. (If you didn’t come with us, then we would love to know more about what you did that week back here at school).

You will have already written some ideas last week but today you will need to cut and past these ideas from Word onto our blog, then improve and add more ideas to make it the best piece of writing you can!


  • Keep your writing interesting for your audience (our school community and beyond)
  • Make sure that your writing is in full sentences with no “text speak”, slang or inappropriate language.
  • Keep yourself and those who you are talking about anonymous – it is your responsibility to make sure you and others are safe online.

I can’t wait to see what you write for your first blog entry.
