This week, your homework challenge is to write a 500 word short story for a competition. If your story is chosen as one of the winners, it will be included in a brand new professionally staged show performed at the Polka Theatre! Wow!

To begin, read the introduction to the story:

The, look through the photographs:

You need to bring the photos to life by writing a story inspired by them.

Please bring your story into school before Tuesday- do not send your entry off to the address on the website. We will check them and send them all off together.

The rules to follow:
  • The story cannot be longer than 500 words.
  • You must type or neatly handwrite your story. If the judges can't read it, they can't judge it!
  • The story must be inspired by the photographs.
  • On the front page of your story please write the title of your story, plus your full name, school, year group and age. Please provide the contact details (address, phone number and email) of an adult we can contact if you are one of the shortlisted stories - either a teacher or family member.
  • It must be your own, original work.

Top Tips!
  • Make sure your story has a clear beginning, middle and end.
  • Use some exciting language- amazing adjectives, adverbs and connectives.
  • As you only have 500 words, keep the story simple and don't have too many characters.
