For Primary 5 – Primary 7 Pupils
The local to Highland Neil Gunn Writing Competition is extending its submission date for P5-P7 children across Highland until the end of term (April 5th) to provide schools with the time to get their submissions in. This is a great opportunity for children to create a piece of writing for a competition which celebrates the life of the Scottish writer Neil Gunn.
The theme for P5 – P7 is a quote from Neil Gunn’s writing:
“He was wakened by a loud knocking at the door.” (The Well at the World’s End)
Children in P5-P7 can write a piece which is inspired by this quote, presented in either poetry or prose.
This is a valuable opportunity to develop purpose and audience for writing. Click the links below to access the competition information and entry form:
