Festival of Writing
This week some of our pupils took part in a Festival of Writing with the author Anthony Lishak. Our Year 2 class did some work with based around his book ‘Clickety Clack Something to Pack’. The children created their own “suitcase books” and decide what they wanted to pack in their cases – using rhyme, alteration and descriptive language. Today Year 2 went to Park View Primary to share their suitcases with the other schools, and took part in a fun filled day of workshops. Year 5 also took part in a writing workshop were they had the opportunity to develop and extend their writing skills.
