Imaginations run wild at Wilmcote Primary

Stratford Editorial 19th Mar, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

IMAGINATIONS ran wild when two authors dropped into a Stratford school.

Chris Priestly spent the afternoon at Wilmcote Primary School on Wednesday (March 16) as part of the upcoming Stratford Literary Festival.

Years four, five and six were taught what makes a good horror story by the Tales of Terror writer while kids in years two and three worked with the author of Lottie Lipton Adventures, Dan Metcalf.

And even the school’s youngest pupils got involved with kids from reception and year one enjoying in a host creative writing activities.

But it wasn’t all work and no play as everyone took the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character for the Church Road school’s celebration of World Book Day.

Liz Banyard, headteacher, said: “It was wonderful to see such a wide assortment of book characters in school and the authors were very impressed with the children as they knew the books and had relevant questions to ask.”
