The Gruffalo writing competition

09 April 2019 Share

To celebrate The Gruffalo's 20th anniversary, the NLT are asking children aged 5 to 11 to write the story of what happened next to their favourite character from The Gruffalo. There are free resources available to help teachers run the competition with their pupils, and brilliant prizes up for grabs including signed books, a visit from The Gruffalo himself and £250 worth of books for the winner’s school.

This competition is open to and completely free for all UK schools. Entries are invited from pupils aged 5 to 11.

To enter the competition, you need to be a member of the National Literacy Trust, (discounts for SLA members) whether that is through a paid membership or a free basic membership. The competition opens on 1 April and closes on 30 June.
