Create an e-book for young readers!

This is your chance to win the newly released, fantastic Clicker 7- the complete literacy tool-kit – from Crick Software!

As World Book Day 2016 is organised for the 3rd of March, we thought that it would be good, if once again, our Key Stage Two, Spring Term Competition was to create an e-book – fiction or non-fiction – with an intended audience of Key Stage One children.
Perhaps the book could be shared within school during any literacy events that you may have planned to coincide with World Book Day.

In addition to the obvious literacy opportunities that the competition will undoubtedly create, it will also allow the children the chance to practise and improve upon their word processing and desktop publishing skills.

This is has been a highly successful competition over the last two years that we have run it. Each of the entries that we received in the previous year’s competitions have been really outstanding and a great example of how to use technology to support literacy in schools; we really hope that this year the competition will prove to be equally as successful.

Ideas for your E-Book

  1. A short illustrated story – complete with: colourful illustrations, a beginning middle and end structure, front cover, back cover and an interesting blurb.
  2. A non-fiction information book complete with interesting information. illustrations with captions, contents and index lists, whilst also possessing an inviting front and back cover.

 

Great Prizes

In addition, to the above literacy and computing benefits, your school could possibly win a single licence for the newly released Clicker 7 (worth £250) – kindly donated by Crick Software – or a 123ICT pupil workshop for your school!
