Challenge Days at Chilwell Croft Academy

Writing workshop with author Terry Caffrey -3rd May 2016

Selected children from year 3 and 4 were given the opportunity to develop their writing skills with the author Terry Caffrey.

Terry Caffrey is an award winning performance poet writer who has written numerous books with the aim of inspiring and encouraging children’s imagination, creativity and the joy of reading. Terry encouraged the children to bring stories and poems alive through actions, voice control and rhythmic moves. Throughout the day children developed their imagination and writing skills using word banks, rivers of words and having fun language.

The workshop developed children’s confidence in finding their uniqueness and style as a writer and how to paint a picture of words in their poems. The children thoroughly enjoyed Terry’s infectious humour and passion for words.

The children all left with a personalised, signed copy of his book ‘It Wasn’t Me Miss’, to continue enjoying his writing!
