Year 10 Writer’s Block

Before half term, some of our Year 10 students had the opportunity to visit The Writer’s Block in cooperation with Next Steps Southwest.

Miss Archer explains: “This inspiring experience helped our students to create incredible stories with daring and intriguing characters that explored fascinating scenarios!”

As well as giving them a fun out-of-classroom experience, the workshop sparked imaginations and gave Year 10 the tools to put their own ideas to the page through visual, audio and physical inspirations.

The students worked together to discuss ideas and helped each other develop them further by asking questions and triggering potential story lines. They then had some independent time to focus on their writing and created their stories in just one day.

“A huge thank you to The Writer’s Block and Next Steps Southwest for giving our students the chance to experience the life of a writer and create these outstanding stories!”
