Osgodby's budding authors Stephanie Fox and Rosanna Carr EMN-141104-121912001

Two budding story writers from Osgodby Primary School have made it through to the second round of a national writing competition.

Rosanna Carr and Stephanie Fox were just two of the 118,000 young people who entered this year’s 500 Words story writing competition run by the BBC.

Stephanie used a story her mum used to tell her as inspiration for her piece, Granny Socks.

“My mum used to make up stories about a granny knitting her way round the world,” said Stephanie.

“We got some ideas together in class and then I wrote the story during the holidays.”

Rosanna also used her spare time for putting her story together - The Lucky Rose was written while she was on holiday in the Lake District.

And during the recent school visit from Sir Edward Leigh MP, Rosanna and teacher Anna Pearson took the opportunity to show him her story and he offered his personal congratulations to the girls.

The second round of judging, which contains just 3,500 of the 118,000 entries, will be done by the Scottish Book Trust.

And Stephanie and Rosanna will hear in early May how their stories have fared.
