Imagine a yak turned up at your door. Or maybe a polar bear, or a dinosaur! With the aid of a big sack of cuddly props, the children storyboard their own picture books.


Pirates ahoy!author visits KS1 KS2 creative writing workshop thank you!

KS1 children learn to “write like a pirate” – how to dig for story treasure, plunder a plot and work with their crew to make their stories even better!

EYFS children craft their own treasure chests or treasure maps and write a poem as a class.
