The Scholastic Book Fair is coming back to Seven Mills!

Seven Mills has been offered an extra Book Fair this year by Scholastic and to celebrate the Library is holding a competition!

Children in Reception and Year 1 will be drawing their favourite book characters, Year 2 will be creating their own animal shape poems and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be penning their own Autumn poems.

Five lucky winners will receive a £5 Scholastic voucher to spend at the Fair.

The Fair will run after school on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th November. Competition entries are due in on Thursday 16th and winners will be announced the same day.

If you’re stuck and need some inspiration check out our Autumn Word Cloud and internet links below for help with crafting your poetry masterpiece, or head to the Ideas Store or the school library and use this list of authors to inspire you.

Happy writing!
