100WC Special Showcase: Congratulations Nikita!

Violin, Eaten, Swept, Yellow, Airplane

These five words were our prompt for week 22 of the 100 Word Challenge. Our writers had to ensure these words were included in their piece for that week.

Nikita’s writing was selected by the 100 Word Challenge Team to be showcased for week 22! It is always so exciting to have one of our students’ writing showcased in the 100 Word Challenge!

To this unusual selection of words, Nikita responded with gusto and in her distinctive style: click here to read her piece.

Congratulations to Ethan, whose story was selected for the 100 Word Challenge Special Showcase for week 23! The prompt for that week was a picture:

An old couch with a strange pattern… looks a bit like bricks, really. And a cat sitting on top!

It is fantastic to have a Yahl writer showcased for the first time!  Ethan included a sizzling start to his story: “Bang! Crash! I woke up with a loud noise.” He was also careful to include some information about the way his character was feeling: “I felt shaky and I had goosebumps.”

100WC Special Showcase: Congratulations Harry H and Hamish!

Congratulations to Harry H and Hamish, whose entries were showcased for week 11 of the 100 Word Challenge. The prompt for that week was the word “Remember”, and the theme was that of Remembrance Day. Both boys chose to write a poem (as did many others in the class).

Mrs Diestler from the 100WC team thought that Harry’s word choices created “an engaging, mysterious and beautiful piece”… check out Harry’s poem! If, like Mrs Diestler, you were touched by Harry’s words, don’t forget to leave him a comment!

“I will remember, the day in November                                                        When the noise of the gunfire did cease…”                                             Read Hamish’s elegant poem, and leave him some feedback – he’d appreciate it!

100WC Special Showcase: Congratulations Piper, Harry R and Holly!

Congratulations to Piper, Harry R and Holly: their entries are showcased for week 7 of the 100 Word Challenge. The prompt for that week was:

I could not believe the smell“.

Well, as you would expect, we had some pretty funny entries… the challenge for some of us was how to be funny and appropriate at the same time 😉 !! Harry R did a great job of this, and he presented his writing in an unexpected way: an exchange of emails between a dad and his son.

“My heart felt like it stopped. Questions of confusion and frustration were running through my head.”… When I first read Piper’s piece, I was so impressed with the phrase ‘Questions of confusion and frustration‘… this is powerful writing, Piper.

Ms Hopkinson, from the 100WC team commented on Holly’s post: “This is brilliantly written, Holly. Just like a real writer! I love the way you have used one-word lines and kept the pace going. This is just an amazing piece of writing.” Would you agree with her?

SpecialShowcase

Congratulations to Jake, whose story was selected for the 100 Word Challenge Special Showcase for week 1! The prompt for week 1’s challenge was the phrase “finally, we can make a start…”

It is fantastic to have a writer selected for the first showcase of the new 100WC year. Our class was very much looking forward to the return of this wonderful literacy initiative. Today our students enjoyed reading other children’s entries from many different countries. It is inspiring and fun to discover how others responded to the prompt!
