A YOUNG writer has won a national award.
Newton Primary School pupil Catherine Thomas wrote an adventure story in less than 500 words.
Her work was judged by children’s author Cath Cassidy.
Explore Learning, an Ofsted-registered tuition centre for five to 14-year-olds based at Sainsbury’s, Great Boughton, organised the competition.
Catherine was presented with a trophy and book vouchers.
Explore Learning tutor Lisa Joyce said: “ We go into city schools and try to get children really interested in literacy.”
Explore Learning provides additional lessons in maths and English to children for up to 75 minutes, often as their parents shop.
Anyone interested in enrolling a child for Explore Learning should contact Lisa on 01244343433.
