Longden CE Primary School and Nursery

Award winning writer from Longden

Congratulations to Oliver in Chestnut Class who has been announced as one of six winning authors in the Shrewsbury Bookfest WW1 project, Flo of the Somme. Children in Ash and Chestnut Classes all took part in the project which was to explore the battle of the Somme through a picture storybook about a brave rescue dog, Flo. The book really caught their imaginations and all children wrote newspaper reports telling of Flo's heroism in the trenches. Reports from Y3 and 4 were entered into the competition to be judged by a special Bookfest panel. The prizewinners were announced this week. Oliver will receive his prize at a special awards ceremony to be held this Saturday in the children's bookshop in Shrewsbury, Button and Bear. Well done to Mrs Bray and Mrs Rogers for bringing this topic alive for the children and to all the report writers for your hard work.
