Jack Trelawny visits Burgoyne Middle School
The children in Years 5 and 6 at Burgoyne Middle school enjoyed an inspirational talk from the author Jack Trelawny today.
The author of the Kernowland and Erthwurld series spoke about how he uses his imagination to create stories.
He showed with a series of pictures how he used certain questions – who, what, where, when and why – to develop ideas for story writing.
The children had many a giggle at the wonderful animals Mr Trelawny had created from the zebroceros to the cross between the giraffe, seal, deer and elephant that even Mr Trelawny had been unable to name!!!
“I loved the way he made up animals- the cross breeds- they were so funny”
Other children thought “the cute animals were the best” while other children were surprised: “It was amazing how he read the first chapter of his book without even looking at it!”
To Campion Books,
Please pass on again our gratitude to Jack. The staff and children are all enthused having seen him in action. What an inspirational speaker!!!! the children loved him and the staff were enthralled as well. We are handing out the extra order forms this afternoon as many children expressed the wish that they had ordered...
