Improved handwriting Competition - ( For Teams 1 - 12) - Update

As you already know, the children and staff of Charlestown have prioritised presentation and handwriting over this term. Across KS1 & KS2 we have seen dramatic improvements with some children as they completely transformed their writing. Many more children are taking pride in their work and are proud of what they have achieved. 

As Christmas is upon us, we thought it would be nice to run a competition to give children a chance to win a trip to the Oldham Theatre Workshop on Tuesday 20th December to watch " A Christmas Carol".

I have attached a copy of the poem " Falling Snow" please encourage your child to enter the competition by writing out the poem in their best handwriting and return to school no later than Wednesday 14th December. 

We will then select the children based on their handwriitng and if it has improved since returning to school in September, those names will then be randomly selected.

Thank you for your continued support. 


( Remember, this is about improved handwriitng. The amount of writing is not important, just the quality) 


Thank you for all the lovely handwriting enteries!

The children that won the competition said they had a fantastic time!

Look out for more competitions in school in the New Year.
