Chris White Visit

Chris White, writer and illustrator, visited school on Thursday to work with the Big Hoot after school group to help the pupils to achieve section B of their art award.

The day started off with a bang as Chris delivered a lively and entertaining performance of his poems to Key Stage 2 in a special assembly.

Chris began with an introduction to some of his illustrations.

Chris asked the pupils to invent their own super heroes to help them to write a poem.

The assembly ended with a performance of Chris' alien poem.

 Once the assembly was over, it was time to get down to some serious owl business. First of all, Chris helped the reception and KS1 pupils to draw their very own owl illustrations - with a twist of course.

The children then used their illustration to help them to write a poem about Bob the owl.

The Reception and KS1 pupils had a fun morning with Chris.

After lunch, it was time for the KS2 pupils to work with Chris. They were given the challenging task of creating two different owl illustrations. A normal owl and a wacky owl.

 Once the children finished drawing their illustrations, it was time to write creatively with the help of Chris.

The afternoon ended with a performance of the pupils poems.

 The children all had a hooting day with Chris and so did the staff.  Please ask the Big Hoot pupil in your class to share their owl themed poetry with you.
