11-13 year-olds at ORA are encouraged to participate in BBC Radio 2’s story writing competition, ‘500 Words’, which opens every January. The competition culminates in a broadcast extravaganza of live music and sensational story-telling every summer, at a special venue. Past venues have included The Globe and The Tower of London!
To help to broaden our students’ vocabulary, a ‘Word of the Week’ is shared with all students. Evidence of correct use of this word will mean merit points!
