Talented tots from a Whalley school are to become published authors.

Year one students from Oakhill School entered a poetry competition run by an organisation called Young Writers that encourages children to write stories and poems using their imagination.

This year the theme was Safari and the children, aged just five and six, had to write about an animal of their choice using similes in an acrostic poem,a verse where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase.

This was certainly a challenge for the children but they rose to it and all their poems will be published in anthology.
