Duncombe School – BBC Live Lesson, 500 Words Writing Competition

10 May 2019

Pupils in Upper School took part in a Live Lesson hosted by the BBC, to support the development of creative writing for the 500 Word writing competition.  Gathered together in Old Hall, we listened, captivated by the dulcet tones of author, Frank Cottrell-Boyce. With the creative juices flowing, pupils helped plan out ideas for a short story which, no more than 500 words in length, could showcase their imaginative ideas. There was a collective gasp when David Walliams stepped unexpectedly into the studio to read our shared story!
