As schools can be very busy places, we thought that it might be be useful to remind you about the up-and-coming closing date for our Create an E-Book Competition.
The competition closing date is the last day of term, Friday the 14th of February so you still have a little over two weeks in order to get your entries in to us.
The competition details are reproduced below for your information:
Welcome to 123ICT’s Create an E-Book Competition for 2020. We thought it would be really good if our early spring term competition was to create an e-book as this would allow entrants to share their e-books in school during any literacy events that you may have planned to coincide with World Book Day, on Thursday the 5th of March.
The competition is divided into two categories:
KS1. Simple Story or Factual E-Book. To create an illustrated fiction or non-fiction e-book, which can be a simple story created by them, the retelling of a traditional story, or a simple factual book of their interest. The entries can be created and submitted using a variety of computer software and iPad applications.
KS2. Fiction or Non-Fiction E-Book. The KS2 e-book can be fiction, or non-fiction. It can have added sound and animation and it can be written for a KS1 audience, or for KS2 consumption.
In addition to the obvious literacy opportunities that this competition will undoubtedly create, it will also allow the children the chance to practise and improve upon their word processing and desktop publishing skills. This has been a highly successful competition in the past and each of the entries that we have received in our previous years competitions have been really outstanding and a great example of how to use technology to support Literacy in schools; we really hope that this year the competition will prove to be equally as successful.
The closing date for submitting entries to the competition is the end of the first half of the Spring Term.
