Our Literacy Vision
We welcomed Jack Trelawny who came to visit Years 2-6. Jack Trelawny is an author, school visit, children 'edutainer' and screenwriter. His first book for children, 'Kernowland 1 The Crystal Pool', was published in 2005. In 2017, he started writing screenplays.
Jack was very entertaining and really engaged the children in the process of writing. As a school we are trying very hard to emphasis the joy of creative writing and Jack gave us professional tips and tricks to help us begin our writing. He told us to use photos and images and the W questions (who, what, where, when, why and how) to come up with different interesting ideas for stories. He told us about his love of history and his family and what gives him inspiration.
We were very lucky that he came with books to give to lucky children to win as prizes and he even signed them!
Please read below for more exciting activities, downloads and games that you can enjoy at home!
