Year 4 Creative Writing Trip
On Thursday 4th February 2016, fifteen Year 4 boys visited St. John’s, Leatherhead to attend a Creative Writing workshop run by the Head Librarian of St. John’s.
The workshop began with a discussion on what makes a good book and the important elements of an excellent story. The boys then had three stations to visit to inspire them as they thought about characters, plot and settings. Having been inspired, the boys then had some quiet writing time to begin their story. Every boy worked diligently and with great enthusiasm. After some intense writing time, we had a delicious tea in the Hogwarts-like dining hall and left with our goody bags; heading for home and brimming with story ideas! Mrs Reynolds was delighted to take such a well-behaved and engaged group of boys.
