The Queen's C of E
Primary School

The Katie Mortimer Shield

Katie Mortimer, who sadly died from cancer in December 2010, was a Queen’s parent and journalist who cared passionately about literacy in schools.  As well as the shield, money was raised in Katie’s name to sponsor the fantastic  “Katie’s Chair” in our library.)  

Each year, Class Teachers are invited to submit a piece of creative writing from their class that they think is truly exceptional.  All the submissions are then looked at in detail and an overall winner is chosen for the Katie Mortimer Shield.

The winner for 2018 is Annabel in Year 5 for her fantastic story "Warriors" which you can download and enjoy below.
