Author Visit: Steve Clifford

Author Steve Clifford's Workshops and Lessons

The children enjoyed some fantastic workshops and lessons this week with author Steve Clifford. Steve focused on the importance of allowing the children's imagination to run free and then to come back to edit it once they have written what lies in their own imagination.


From one of our children: 'I feel like my brain came alive. Steve taught us about writing with our imagination and how we can then work on everything else in our edit. When we read our stories as a class they were all really good and I felt very proud of myself. My teacher read hers too and it was so good to hear how we all had such different stories.'


We really hope they were inspired by the fantastic work they created with his help and it sparked a love of reading and creative writing!
