Amazing Story Writing

Check out the story Jasmine wrote this week:

Jasmine’s Story

Well Done Jas!



The 1/2 Learning Community were very lucky to have a real life writer, Sean Cox, come to visit us. He is the author of the book Ruby: The Adventures of the Travelling Bug.

We asked questions on how he wrote the story, how long it took and how the illustrations were made.  The Year 1 and 2s had lots of good ideas about where Ruby could go next in her travels!




Today Blue and Purple came up with a Writing Checklist.


What other things do good writers do?

I heard that some writers keep a journal of all the great words they like the sound of. They usually find them in the books they  have read.  They then use this list in their own writing.  They call it Treasure Words.  Maybe you could start your own?! 🙂
