Creative Writing Workshop
On Friday 18th September, a group of Year 5 children had the opportunity to attend a Creative Workshop at the Friends’ School.
During the morning, the children worked in groups to create a ‘woven’ blanket based upon a forest or a mountain theme. The finished results were a real celebration of the children’s creative and artistic talents!
After lunch, the children enjoyed a performance of the story ‘The Princess’ Blankets’ by Britain’s Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.
The performance was really enjoyable and included poetry and music. The children were able to understand how their blankets were a part of the story! The day was a lot of fun and we left feeling inspired to write our own poetry and stories.
