On Wednesday 21st April, the author Adam Bushnell visited Hamsterley Primary School to inspire the children with his love for writing.
In Class 2, we looked at how to write a quest story, where the hero has to battle with a monster in the climactic scene.
The children were introduced to replica Roman armour and learnt the names for weapons and items of armour that would help add authenticity to their writing.
Adam encouraged them to think about the strengths and skills their characters would have, and how they would use these to overcome the challenges they would face on their quest.
The children then used ideas from the “Descriptosaurus” to write the battle scene between their hero and their monster.
