‘Growing and learning together to be the best we can be’

GXXTRA Workshop

We went to Shirley Heath Junior school to take part in a writing workshop learning about mystery and suspense. We watched a short video and then wrote our own mystery stories. We learnt the three skills to create suspense; cliffhangers; ellipsis and; varying the length of sentences. The most important thing is 'Show don't tell!'


Niamh has written a lovely brief recount of the visit...
