We have had an 'author in residence' with us this week at Dore Primary; the brilliant Alan Gibbons, and today he spent the afternoon with us in Y4H. In fact we were all authors as Alan help us fashion our own stories set on the Mary Rose!

It was a fantastic experience as we explored a rich vocabulary, using different sentence types, similes, metaphors and other writing techniques. 

It was more exciting than I have described it (the irony!) and I am sure many of the children have been inspired to create their own stories.
