Take a look at the winning entry of our World Book Day creative-writing competition

'Stars Fell on Campeche'

Back in February ‘09, we launched an exclusive creative-writing competition to celebrate World Book Day. We challenged children to complete the exciting story, ‘Stars Fell on Campeche’, written by author of The Joshua Files (Scholastic, £6.99 PB), MG Harris.

We were overwhelmed by the response. We had so many entries that it took the Junior Ed PLUS team nearly a week to read them all! The standard was extremely high, however, Erin Rossiter’s (from St Wilfrid’s CE Primary School in Haywards Heath) ending really captured the judges’ imaginations.

Erin’s ending, which sees the main character, Josh, being helped by fireflies to find his way out of the dark Mexican jungle, has been added to the original interactive story starter. Take a look at the complete version of ‘Stars Fell on Campeche’ to read Erin’s winning ending. The original version is also available if your class would like to have a go at writing their own ending.

Three runners up were also commended for their imaginative endings:

  • Ben Irwin (European School, Oxfordshire)
  • Ellie Thompson (Brownlee Primary School, Co Atrium)
  • Heather Wilson (Brimrod Community School, Rochdale)
