We are delighted to announce that five Vinehall children have made it through to the next stage of the BBC 500 words creative writing competition.

Well done to Harry G, Dylan P, Beatrice M, Daniella F and Faris A for your success. In 2017 the BBC 500 received 131,798 entries and the numbers for 2018 are expected to increase. To be taken through to the top 5000 is a super achievement!

The BBC 500 words was concieved by Radio 2 DJ, Chris Evans who had a dream: to get children excited about reading and writing. All children, no matter what their ability. 500 Words is now one of the most successful story-writing competitions for kids in the world: Three quarters of a million children have written stories over the years!
