On Monday 11th February 7 boys from Years 3 & 4 attended a Challenging Writers’ Day at Hollymount school. They had the wonderful opportunity to work with an established author Colin R Parsons on writing a piece of fiction. They listened really closely to his ideas and used them to make up their own stories. The children were very enthusiastic about their learning and they were very eloquent in sharing their own thoughts.

Here is a little quote from Tristan and Daniel in Year 3 Oak.

“When we got to Hollymount school we were met by a children’s author from Wales named Colin R Parsons. We enjoyed the part where we got to re-write his story in our own words. The story was called ‘Disc’. We shared our stories with our family and they were extremely proud. We were very, very happy and hope we get picked again.”
