On Thursday 3rd November 2016 I went to Bearwood Primary School with three other Year 3 and 4’s for a More Able Writers day. Mrs Odgers came with us and drove us there. We met David Gatward who is a brilliant fiction writer, performance poet and illustrator. He told us about his life and his writing.
After break he showed us some ways on how to plan our writing. Then just before lunch we did this thing called ‘Flash Fiction’ where he gave us a topic and we had to write a story about it. Our topic was ‘horror’! After lunch he helped us with our ideas and we finished writing our stories. Some of us read ours out!
At the end of the day David Gatward gave us a signed copy of his book to take home with us. I really enjoyed the day and learnt lots about writing stories.
