Calling all Writers!

  • Are you between 8-11 years old?
  • Do you have a passion for food?
  • Could you write a letter about it by Wednesday 12th October?

Blue Coat would like to proudly enter a batch of letters from you, our children, all in the name of the Oxford Literary festival. There are prizes to be won. Still interested? Then this is what you need to do...


Competition details:

We know how much fun you have with food and we want to hear about it.

All you have to do is write a letter addressed to a celebrity, a family member, a politician or anyone else you can think of, and let them know of your passion for food.

Here are some suggestions of what you could write about, and they fit in really well with the Chartwell's philosophy: 'Eat, Learn, Live'

EAT
Something that you really enjoy eating

Recalling a meal that made a big positive impression on you

LEARN
Why food is important for education

The influences of culture on food

Why you enjoy food technology lessons or one particular lesson on a food related environmental or ethical issue

LIVE
An environmental or ethical issue concerning the production of food

Why you prefer home cooked food to eating out

The life story of the ingredients of a particular dish


Entries must be in the form of a letter and keep to: 

a 1 page maximum of A4 in handwritten pen


Here is last year's winning letter for the 8-11yrs age group: Part 1   Part 2

More details of fantastic prizes etc can be found on the Chartwells website.

We'd like to enter as many letters as possible so get writing to win:

All letter entries to Mr Ryan by Wednesday 12th October at the very latest.
