I spent a lovely week at Presentation College in Windsor as writer in residence.
I worked with students from years 7 – 10 on imagination, visualisation and free writing. We also talked about the publishing business.
Here is a showbag that Anthea from Year 7 made. It is based on my book ‘Poppy Comes Home’. I loved the idea of using Barbie dolls.
And here are two poems that came out of the 3 minute writing exercise
The clouds fell from the sky
There are daisies in the ground
I started to fly
I turned into a necklace, a book, an elephant.
Flowers in my undies
Friends are super
Trees grow on leaves
Balloons have pets
by Ines Naylor Year 7
The chair is yellow
It has banana peels all over it
and smells like, well I don’t think you want to know
Now we’re flying in the sky
The sky is blue
oh dear, now I am swimming with cows and scary sharks
Now I am in bed thinking about how wonderful my day was
I’m so happy
by Ginger Roberts Year 7
