Super Pets |
Creative Writing Competition

5-7 Years

Super Pets Video

Your child is invited 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 child's 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 child will love the freedom of creating their very own super pet, and will be reassured by the familiar superhero theme.
