Week 1: A Call to Adventure!

We recently welcomed pupils from local primary schools to King’s Hall for the first of our Creative Writing Enrichment Workshops.

The children enjoyed a creative morning learning how to write adventure stories in the comfort of our fabulous library.

First, we began by sharing a few details about ourselves and what we liked to read. Harry Potter, Claude and Stanley in Holes were some of our favourite adventure story characters. A bone chilling reading of The Grendel opened our morning brilliantly with a talk about the general structure of an adventure story, while the children used their lovely new King’s Hall journals to makes notes.

After a short break of juice and biscuits (which included a visit from ‘Snoops’ our resident King’s Hall dog!) we did some activities which got our creative thoughts flowing.

The children created fantasy names for potential locations in their stories with the help of old maps and combined two place names. For example, who might live in a place called Hoppswickle?

We matched story books with their fantastical world maps, handled some objects to inspire further tales and generally had a wonderful morning.

We can’t wait to hear how the children got on writing their own adventure stories – who knows, perhaps The Grendel has met his match?

King's Hall Open Day

Our next Open Day will be taking place on Friday 4 October 2019 at 10.00am.

Open Days are an ideal way of looking around a school to see if you think this might be the one for you and your child. Our pupils play a huge part in the success of these days and thoroughly enjoy showing prospective families around their school.
