In English this term, the Year 7 students are studying Morris Gleitzman’s Once. On Thursday, 28th April the students were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Gleitzman.
This consisted of a whole-group session where Gleitzman explained the decisions he made when writing the novel and how this lead to the writing of another five books about Felix, the protagonist of 'Once'. In a follow up workshop students focused on developing their narrative writing skills.
Students are required to write a prologue for 'Once' as their assessment task and I am sure that students gained many insights from Gleitzman that they can apply to their writing.Mr Peter Hoens
