Y5 WORK WITH ACTOR Chris CONNAUGHTON!

Chris C

To help celebrate the end of our Greek topic, the children took part in an exciting literacy workshop led by actor and author Chris Connaughton.

During the morning session, the children listened to amazing story telling, where they heard all about the adventures of Odysseus.

Chris helped to bring the stories alive and the children were a captive audience.

With wonderful motivation, the children then wrote letters and diaries in character. Together, they created a ‘word hoard’ and then were able to use this to write descriptive pieces of writing adding and improving their work through the afternoon.

There’s a short video on our Twitter feed – check it out!
