Imaginative youngsters at Lime Academy Abbotsmede in Kingsley Road, Eastfield, Peterborough, have seen their work transferred to the pages of a new book.

Last year’s Year 3 pupils entered a competition to write a short adventure story about a toy that comes to life, in no more than 100 words, run by Young Writers.

Year 3 teacher Andrea Bradley said: “The children all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and it raised aspirations across school.

“We are raising reading standards, therefore this has contributed immensely to a whole school approach to reading and writing.”

Headteacher Rachael Holland added: “We are very proud of all the children who worked hard to produce a story of 100 words, and will be displaying our copy of the book in our library for everyone to read and enjoy.”
