Students’ questions included-
When you were a kid, did you always want to be a writer? How do you manage to get all your words correct? How many rough copies do you do before it gets published? Do you always know how your stories are going to end when you start them, or do you change it as you go? What do you think makes a really good story? Have you got any advice for us as young authors?
Students then compiled book reviews of ‘George the Farmer plants a wheat crop’, ‘George the Farmer shears a sheep’, ‘George the Farmer, Ruby and the dairy dilemma’ and ‘George the Farmer, beehive Breakout’ learning about setting, characters, ‘wow’ words and identifying a problem then finding a solution. Crikey mate, that’s a lot of learning!
