Dan Worsley was invited into our school to work with pupils across Key Stage 2. Over a series of sessions, he demonstrated how he writes with a ‘show not tell’ theme. He ignited a spark in their writers-mind and modelled how to magpie from other authors including himself to develop their ability to create opening settings and character descriptions.
He created opportunities for the children to build on their own experiences i.e. the school playground and celebrated their success by reading examples together.
The pupils at Marsden have not only been inspired by Dan but have shared their experiences and newly developed skills with their peers. We can’t wait for him to return again soon.
