Youngsters from Leeds are feeling chipper after taking home two prizes in the Oxford Reading Tree’s 30th birthday story writing competition.

The children from Rose Court - the nursery and pre-prep of The Grammar School at Leeds - were challenged with writing a new Biff, Chip and Kipper story. Year one pupils drew inspiration from the Fire of London and year two pupils wrote a class book about an African adventure.

Amna Talha’s story about escaping the fire in a boat on the Thames was selected as one of 12 winners in the 5-6-year-old category, and class 2SA’s story was among one of 18 prize-winners in the 7-8 year old category.
