Giving the Book a Hook

7th December 2018

Last week at Broadwood we spent a whole five days immersing ourselves in story writing. Each phase decided on a writing hook to draw children into a story. These included aliens crash landing, letters in bottles floating into school and mysterious photos discovered on the beach.

Drama was used to make the children feel part of an event that lead them into writing their own stories. We used models, pictures, sound effects and maps to engage the children and as a result their enthusiasm made their imaginations run wild. Teachers witnessed some of the best writing seen in years and some of the most excited children ever to enter a classroom.

We are so grateful that parents got on board with our costume day finale, and would love to hear back from you about how your child enjoyed the week. Thank you again!
