The start of the October Half Term break saw twenty four of our Year 5 G&T writers attend a writing weekend workshop with local author Adam Bushnell. Adam worked with the children on the finer points of story writing, looking in detail at place settings, setting the scene, and characterisation.
Staying at Alnwick Youth Hostel, we were lucky enough to visit Alnwick Castle, Holy Island and Alnwick Gardens, plus make an evening trip to a nearby graveyard for spooky stories!
It was incredibly hard work, but they came back with loads of ideas and new writing skills. On their return, they put it all in place and created their own stories which will get published in a book for our school library.
