Canterbury Rotary Club story writing competition

DSC 0022Today we were visited by members of the Canterbury Rotary Club, who presented prizes to some of our upper school children. St. Stephen’s children won both prizes in the Year 5 category, with Marcello coming first and Victor scooping second prize. And we were delighted to learn that Freya won first prize in Year 6. The children were presented with certificates and book tokens.

The judges were very impressed with the standard of writing from St. Stephen’s Junior School and congratulated everyone who took part; they had a very difficult time choosing the winners!

Yr 5 English set visit the Folkestone Literary Festival

IMG 0429Mrs Philip's English Y5 set received a lovely letter from the wonderful author/illustrator, Marcia Williams, following their visit to the Folkestone Literary Festival this week. Marcia was delighted to receive copies of the children's fabulous 'Romeo and Juliet' storyboards, which were inspired by her comic-strip retellings of Shakespeare's plays.

"Dear Year 5,

I was lucky enough to meet you all at the Folkestone Book Festival.  Thank you so much for giving me copies of your wonderful Romeo and Juliet comic strip retellings, I did enjoy looking at them all. I thought that you had all done a really fabulous job!  

I liked the fact that they were all very different and some of the artwork was outstanding. I also liked the fact that some of you used stick people, because these can also work very well and be very expressive - as you have proved!

Thank you also for being such a great audience and joining in  with everything.  I had a wonderful time and I hope you all did too. Good luck with all your future projects and thank you again, it was a pleasure to meet you all. Very best wishes, Marcia"
