Frozen in Time

We have some budding authors in our midst here atOakwood Junior School. Lots of children recently entered a writing competition called "Frozen in Time" (which is also the title of one of Ali Sparkes's children's books!). The children were challenged to write any type of writing about being stuck in a particular time period.

Waterstones, who were running the competition, were amazed at the quality of the pieces they received. They found it very hard, but eventually chose an overall winner (out of 2 schools) and a runner up, both from Oakwood! Congratulations to Amy and Amie-Megan!

Amy won a complete set of Ali Sparkes books, signed by the author, and Amie-Megan won a signed copy of Ali's most recent release, "Wishful Thinking". Both girls had the opportunity to meet Ali Sparkes and chat to her, prior to her public book signing, last Saturday, at Waterstones in West Quay.

Not only that, but ALL the entries from Oakwood were on display to the public in the shop, and some of the entrants even came along to meet the author and get books signed.

Well done to Oakwood Writing Superstars!
