Sarah Brennan

Just before the half term break the children of Peak school had a fantastic treat, the local author Sarah Brennan came to visit and ran workshops for our students. The morning began with a story writing workshop for the Year Six. The students explored how we can write stories that are interesting and engaging, and just how important planning and thinking a head is whenever we write.

Next the year 4 students had a fantastic session on poetry, this was most apt because not only was it International Poetry Day, but also the Year Four classes have been looking at poetry in their Unit of Inquiry. Sarah was able to bring alive all the techniques and language that are needed to express yourself when writing poetry.

Year Five then had a workshop on why books are a brain's best friend, which was timely as their Unit of Inquiry has been the looking at the brain. Finally it was Year Three's turn to enjoy the delights of Sarah's latest book "The Tale of Ping Pong Pig" the last in her series of the Chinese Calendar Tales.
