Children across the school have worked hard to regain their stamina for writing over the course of the academic year and it is wonderful to provide further challenging opportunities for pupils to develop their writing, through programmes such as the Brilliant Club’s Scholars Programme. The use of film has been highly effective in inspiring some of our Year 6 writers, as you can see from this example written by Emelia.
Other children have taken their passion further and written their own books. This superstar, who won a poetry competition earlier in the year and had her winning entry published in a book of poems, is currently writing a chapter book inspired by her pet cat. She describes it as a fictional story based on what she imagines her cat’s world is like, except her fictional cat is scared of sardines! Having read J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series, she was inspired to have a go at writing some fiction herself and hasn’t looked back since.
