Visit by author, Cathy Farr.
R10 were privileged to have a visit from author Cathy Farr on 24th January. Cathy spent a couple of hours with each class and talked about her books and how she writes them. She gave our young writers plenty of useful tips on how to make the most of their writing and everyone had the opportunity to create descriptive paragraphs and short stories based on her ideas.
Here are some of the tips that R10 remembered afterwards:
- don’t always use the verb ‘said’ in dialogue;
- short sentences can be very effective;
- try free writing using a random selection of words;
- and read your work out loud to check it.
Matilda stated, “I loved this workshop because it was so much fun and I didn’t even realise I was learning!”
