Firstly Mr Foster spoke about LORIC and explained to the Yr 7s how it builds on other areas of personal growth which compliments their academic lessons. Mr Foster went on to show students our new LORIC ties which students can earn by achieving all their LORIC certificates and badges. Mr Foster encouraged students to get their LORIC goals agreed with their form tutors and start aiming to earn a LORIC tie.
Mrs Cartledge then went onto explain the historical fiction writing competition which is open to all Year 7 and Year 8 students.
Today Mr Foster and Mrs Cartledge have delivered the same assembly to our Year 8s and we hope many of our students get involved and take part.
Historical Fiction competition
We would like to encourage our emerging writers and historians to write a short historical fiction story of their choice. One of the key attributes of historical fiction is that it has a convincing setting in a past time and place. You can set your story in ANY period or place in the past, so the story can fit in with and extend any historical topic you may be studying or have studied in the past.
Winning students in year 7 and 8 will each receive a relevant LORIC badge and a voucher prize for the best story. There will also be a prize for the best fictional character in a convincing historical setting.
What are the judges looking for?
