BBC Radio 2 – 500 Word Competition

Firstly, we hope that you are keeping safe and well in the current climate and secondly a huge well done to all the Year 2 children whose stories were selected for the BBC Radio 2 500-word competition. You all did an amazing job and it was a pleasure to work with you and read your brilliant final stories, you should all be very proud of yourselves. 

The 500-word competition have now selected those stories which are through to the next round of judging. We’re pleased to say that Sofia in Otter Class with her story ‘An orphaned marmoset tale’ has made it through to the next round. The competition received nearly 135,000 entries and only around 5000 go to the Reading Agency for the second round of judging. So well done to Sofia you should be very proud!

KS1 Cross Country Competition

The children in year 1 and 2 enjoyed their day out at the cross country competition. The year 1 children had to run 600m and the year 2 children had to run 800m. They all spent the day with a smile on their face and a spring in their step. Well done to all of you, you made us all very proud at Drayton Community Infant School.
