BBC Radio 2 launched the annual ‘500 words’ writing competition for children this week. You access the website here.
It is for children aged between 5 and 15 in two groups – 5 to 9 and 10 to 13.
There are some great resources to help children start writing which can be accessed here – tips and resources.
Interested adults (teachers and librarians) can volunteer to be judges and help to read about 30 stories and score them.
