Win £250 worth of resources for your school!

This time of year is all about giving. So at TT Education we are giving your children the opportunity to win:

  • a bundle of English resources worth over £250 for your school; AND
  • a bundle of books and games worth over £50 for themselves. 

There are two prizes available: one for KS1 and one for KS2.

All the children have to do to win is tell us a wonderful story in just FIVE sentences! At TT Education, we love five-sentence stories – they are a marvellous way to demonstrate a clear story structure. They’re also a marvellous way to show off how concise and precise you can be with your language – when you don’t have much space to play with, every single word becomes more significant.

There is no limit to the number of entries per school, but individual children can submit no more than three entries.

Entries must be submitted either by printing, completing and scanning the entry form and emailing it to, or by sending your forms to our postal address by 5pm on Monday 11th December 2017. Entries received after this time will, unfortunately, not be accepted. Winners will be announced on Thursday 14th December 2017.

You’ll find some examples of five-sentence stories below, along with the terms and conditions for the competition and an entry form.

Good luck and happy writing!
