On Wednesday 15th April, Year 5 welcomed Lucy and Ashlene from Explore Learning into our classrooms to deliver a writing workshop.
The children were shown techniques for improving sentence writing and they were able to put these together to plan stories with 'strange events and peculiar happenings'.
The children all enjoyed the experience and many used the knowledge they had acquired to enter this year's National Young Writers' Awards, with the chance to win a trip to Disneyland Paris!
Lucy and Ashlene were delighted with the work produced by Year 5 with Lucy even emailing to say, "I was really impressed with the children's knowledge and inspiring ideas…and with all the grammar they knew, particularly their knowledge of clauses!".
We are very proud that the children represented themselves, and St. Thomas More, so brilliantly. Well done Year 5!
