Creative writing workshop with local schools

Rubies and pearls gleamed in the bright lights of the library on Twhen twenty seven girls from three schools - Salisbury Cathedral, Winterslow Primary and Forres Sandle Manor came to our school. The first part of the creative writing workshop involved the pupils writing close focus descriptions of the gems, using language as detailed and imaginative a way as possible. Then, while they having refreshments, the jewels were ‘stolen’. Five suspects were hauled in front of the girls and were quizzed about their alibis and motives. The pupils wrote these events down and their writing will be turned into a booklet for each girl to keep.
