A heartwarming tale about super powers scooped a Manor Green School pupil the top prize in an annual writing competition.
Joshua Bunce was among the children rewarded at a ceremony on Monday evening, celebrating the best entries to the competition run by the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames and the Royal Borough.
He had written a speech about winning the chance to be a superhero for a day, and said he wanted the power to help his friends who couldn't walk to be able to.
The competition is open to year five and six pupils from Maidenhead schools who choose from three writing tasks.
Three entries from each school are put before a panel of judges, who pick a winner from each school and then an overall winner.
This year children could choose to write a speech about becoming a superhero, a description of a newly-discovered plant or creature, or an eye-witness account of an Olympic event.Read more in tomorrow's Advertiser
