Creative minds and lots of potential writers are among our students who got to meet Peter Bently at the beginning of the week. Our guest author came to tell PP through P3 students some of his stories and – in four individual and age appropriate sessions – a little bit about how stories happen.
With the help of Peter Bently’s professional guidance all students got to create their story character. The older year groups even wrote a 12 section story together and successfully mastered the challenge of writing and illustrating their own picture books in the end. Of course there was time for questions, little chats with the author and Peter Bently signed the little autograph cards many students had prepared in advanced or books they had brought along.
The children will definitely remember what they experienced that day:
- The title of the book does not necessarily have to be known or chosen before starting to write.
- As you start writing you might not know the end of your story.
- While you write your story, you will have more ideas and your story might turn out completely different than you thought.
- Illustrations can save you words sometimes.
- Meeting a real author!
Our young booklovers sure enjoyed and cherished story time with Peter Bently!
