We are elated to congratulate Jonathan, Year 7 on becoming one of five winners in the Young Writers 'Unsolved' writing competition. His mini saga 'The Ice Portrait' was selected from over 14,500 entries and now appears on their website under the Summer Term Winners, click here to view. His mini saga was written in English lessons when he was in Year 6 and it was voted to be one of our school winners as well.

For those of you who are not familiar with this text type, a mini saga is a piece of creative writing that tells a story in 100 words or fewer. With such a challenging limitation, every word counts. Each mini saga should engage the reader by starting with a great 'hook' and ending with a 'reward for the reader', even if that is in the form of a cliffhanger. We are proud of all of the entries by Solefield boys that were published and thrilled that Jonathan's one can be read as an exemplar for students up and down the country. Congratulations, Jonathan!
