Whether you’ve been writing since Year 1 or you’re one who’s always fancied picking up a pen, why not challenge yourself this term by being economical with your words.
London Nautical’s English department has thrown down the gauntlet and now want to challenge students in Year 7 through to 9. Are you ready for the 50 word challenge? Sounds like an easy endeavour right?
