Christmas holiday 'Creative Writing Workshop' provides festive and fantastic opportunity for Terra Nova students

The Christmas Creative Writing Workshop was a wonderful opportunity for many of our senior students to familiarise themselves with the classic story of 'The Snowman' and get themselves ready for the festive season! We looked at Michael Morpurgo's re-telling of the story and children spent the day learning about the author's craft through characterisation, show not tell and how to build an exciting world using maps. Every child who took part produced a thoughtful and imaginative story which weaved in elements of 'The Snowman' along with their own ideas. It was a beautiful way to start the Christmas holidays and all the children who took part really embraced the themes of the workshop and went away buzzing with creativity and spark.
