Author Shares Writing Tips with Pre-Prep
On Thursday 8th February Pre-Prep pupils enjoyed a visit from award-winning author Heather Butler. Heather has written over 30 books, including Us Minus Mum, which won the UK Literacy Association Highly Recommended 7-11 Award and was long listed for the Carnegie Medal Award.
Helen spoke to the children about inspiration for writing a story and how to put ideas onto paper. She spent two sessions with Year 2 where they acted out stories and created a word bank for future use. The children enjoyed a thought-provoking day and produced some amazing stories.
