Winners & Finalists of Year 5 at John Perryn School

I am delighted to announce the winners and finalists of my Eco Creative Writing Competition.

About: The workshop was based on my award-winning children’s book ‘The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden’ which raises environmental awareness and other important positive life messages. This is also a wonderful way to learn about London and explore the famous area of Covent Garden.

Brief: To write your own story based on climate change and the effects this has on our local wildlife. 

 Linked to the National Curriculum

RESULTS! 

In Year 5, I chose two winners and one finalist. The winners were Kai and Samir for their effort in writing a story about climate change and the effects this has on our wildlife. Kai and Samir will receive a signed copy of my children’s book,
The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden and I chose Ismail as a finalist.

All three will have their work published here and posted on my social media profiles:
