Super Pets | Creative Writing Competition | 5-7 Years
Create super stories with Super Pets today!
Your pupils will be inspired to write an incredible superhero adventure story about their furry, feathered or scaly friends...
We're inviting your pupils to create a superhero or villain, inspired by real-life pets or favourite animals, then write a story about their amazing adventure in up to 250 words.
Will your pupils' hero be a courageous cat or a brave badger? Perhaps they'll go with a villainous viper or sneaky stick insect! What superpowers will they have? Your pupils will love the freedom of creating their very own super pet, and more reluctant writers will be reassured by the familiar superhero theme.
