This week, the library lunchtime sessions are changing. Rather than run them according to Key Stage groups, I’ve decided to shake it up a little and try to encourage children from all years in the school to mingle while enjoying shared passions.
Yesterday saw the inaugural lunchtime creative writing session. It proved popular, with at least ten people (girls – come on, boys, join in!) sitting down to create something new. I had one girl writing a fact sheet on animals because non-fiction is her favourite thing, and another wrote an acrostic poem based on snow and her favourite film, Frozen. Riham kindly allowed me to share this with you, as she illustrated it so beautifully too.
I spent a while talking to Sabirah (Year 2) about her creation. She wanted to write a story based on Anthony Browne’s picture book Silly Billy, about a boy who worries about everything until his wise grandmother introduces him to Worry Dolls, which help to take some of his anxiety away. Year 2 has been looking at Anthony Browne’s picture books and they’ve clearly made an impression on this young girl.
I am looking forward to reading more of their creations next week!
