Creativity is commended!
At the beginning of the year, several children joined our ‘Picture Book Club’ that ran for six weeks after school. It seems a while since their completed picture books were sent to the competition facilitated by Readingzone, however the results are in and children from Dudley House School have been shortlisted and commended (4th place) in two categories! Miss White and the staff would like to congratulate Ava, Faith and Isla for their creativity! Check out the website Reading Zone and click on create a picture book competition to see for yourself! The competition runs each year and is open to schools, libraries and home entries across the UK. Children had to create an original picture book independently up to 24 pages long.
