Competition organised by the Cater Museum
Prizes donated by the Billericay District Residents Association



Open to anyone living within 2 miles of Billericay High Street.

This one is for everyone !! We want you to write a short story which features our star exhibit as its main character: our Two Headed Lamb. For those in KS1 it should be a maximum of 200 words; for all other categories a maximum of 500 words. Here are some ideas to get you started:
  • The lamb could discover an exciting object in the Cater Museum
  • Or perhaps it could leave the museum to explore the High Street
  • How about a ghost story ?
  • Maybe the lamb builds a spaceship and travels to the stars ?
  • Or solves a crime ?
  • Perhaps you’d like to write a story of the history of the lamb ?

Your story can be about anything – as long as the Two Headed Lamb plays a leading role.

  • KS1 (Years 1 & 2)
  • KS2 (Years 3 to 6)
  • KS3 and KS4 (Years 7 to 11)
  • KS5 and adults (ages 16 and up)

For KS1 – max 200 words, for everyone else max 500 words.

The winner in each category will receive £25, kindly donated by our sponsors: the Billericay District Residents Association
