    An exciting opportunity has presented itself! Today marked the launch of a new 500 words writing competition based on the Black Lives Matter movement, please see details below: 

    500 Words is the world’s largest story-writing competition for kids. Over a million stories have been submitted since 2011, in response to everything from technology to climate change. Now, we want to bring children’s voices onto the themes and issues emerging from the Black Lives Matter movement. We want children to lead on the process of writing their story.

    From 6:30am on Monday 29th June until Friday 3rd July at 11.59pm 2020, we invite children aged between 5 and 13 to respond in whatever way they wish in no more than 500 words, in the form of a story.

    The narratives we write and share matter. We ask children to draw on their own experiences and feelings to create a story that can be as imaginative and visionary as they want. Storytelling is a must!

    For that reason, we’ve brought together many high-profile personalities, school teachers and librarians alongside the continuing support and academic expertise of Oxford University Press to create 500 Words: Black Lives Matter.

    More details can be found at https://500words.me/ including things for the children to think about and more specific criteria.    All entries official and unofficial should be sent to headteacher@bordsgrn.bham.sch.uk as well as submitted to the 500words.me website so we can celebrate them in school. 

    We are very much looking forward to reading our children's perspective.

    Dear Parents/Carers,


    To help keep our children healthy and active, Sport Birmingham and the School Games Organsiers have introduced the 'School Games Challenges'.

    You can sign up and complete challenges, competing with other schools from home.  We will win different awards if we get into the top 5 and the more children from our school that take part, the better our chance!  All you need to do is sign up to this website: www.sgochallenge.com with the code 'central' and register as Bordesley Green Primary School.  Once you have completed an activity you can fill out how you did on the Challenge Portal.  If you have any problems registering or filling out your activities Mr Bate or Mr O'Neill can answer any questions.


    Thank you for your continued support.


    Mr Bate and Mr O'Neill.
