Budding Year 4 Cranleigh Prep author's work to be published
25th January 2018

Year 4 has it’s very own budding author.

As part of enrichment work at Cranleigh Prep School,  Charlotte T was one of a handful of children in the year group who worked on a Roald Dahl inspired story or poem to enter in the Young Writer’s Phizz Whizzing Words competition.

Their brief was to write in the style of legendary author Roald Dahl, using his unique style of language to inspire them to create their own make-believe world. The children used their imaginations to create new onomatopoeic words to describe their characters, settings and plots and produced some fantastic work.

Charlotte T has been rewarded for all her efforts, as her story: “The Adventure of Professor Billy Bonkers” will be published in a collection of the favourite entries from across the country called: “Phizz-whizzing words – Wondiferous Wordsmiths,” at the end of March.

Last Friday, 19th January, Charlotte was also extremely brave and read her story, with beautiful intonation and great confidence, in a whole school Chapel. A fabulous achievement!

Congratulations to Charlotte and her ‘splendiferous’ story writing!
