Since Rupert missed his centenary celebrations in 2020, Canterbury’s best-dressed bear will...
THE BEANEY BLYTON WINNERS!
The Under 5s were asked to write a few words about What Noddy did at The Beaney or draw a picture of what he did. Children aged 5 to 7 and 8 to 12 were given the first sentence of a Beaney adventure and were asked to complete the story including at least one Beaney object or painting.
The first line was: It was getting dark, as the children climbed the old Victorian staircase in The Beaney…
With over 250 entries it was a really tough decision for the judges, especially when there are obviously a lot of very talented budding authors in the district! A decision was made and we are pleased to announce the winners are….
Age 5 to 7 winner
Naomi Williams Age 7 (story about the Mummified cat!)
Age 8 to 12 winner
Emily-Astin Cook Age 10 (story about the Indian mace)
Under 5s winner (who couldn’t attend last night)
Amelie Davey Age 4 (story about what Noddy did at the Beaney)
There was also a special prize for St Stephen’s Infants School Canterbury for best school entry.
On the 26th March the children, and their families, were invited to a Prize Winners Event where they had refreshments before being presented with prizes and taken on a tour of the exhibition.
Winners received a midnight feast, books, book tokens and Penguin mugs.
Thank you to everyone who entered and if you haven’t been for a slide down the Faraway Tree yet Mystery, Magic & Midnight Feasts continues on at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge until Sunday 19th April.
