Passionate Writers' Day 2019


We were very proud to host a Passionate Writers' Day on December 2nd 2019. Eight of our most passionate writers had the opportunity to work alongside other pupils from local primary schools to further their skills and work alongside a professional script writer. William Gallagher, writer of the Doctor Who scripts, spoke to the children about his job, how he develops ideas and the process that he goes through each time he writes a new script. The children then worked together to create a fictional character and setting and wrote a first draft of their story. Many of the pupils wanted to share their story with each other and discussed different writing styles that were demonstrated. It was lovely to see our pupils working with like-minded writers from other schools in Milton Keynes and create new and exciting writing whilst making some new friends along the way!

Hopefully, we will be able to host another exciting literary event like this during the academic year 2021-2022.
