Intelligence soared at Upper Batley High School as 2 learners won a competition that was ran throughout schools in Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield areas by a company called Veritas Education. The competition was run in conjunction with World Book Day and was called 'Short & Tweet competition'. Learners were asked to write a story, but as a tweet, (no more than 140 characters).
The winner’s entries:
When darkness engulfed me, I realised that I was six feet underground; alive. The first thing that came into my mind was “why am I here?”
Aboobakr Mulla Year 11.
Realisation hit as I opened the chamber; there was a ferocious Basilisk waiting for me. I crumpled to the floor breathing my last breath.
Ayman Shayaan Yr8.
Aboobakr won a £10 Watersones giftcard and Ayman won a £50 Waterstones giftcard.
Great imagination from both our learners and huge congratulations for winner 2 out of 3 prizes!
