Our class author is Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We will be studying his work towards the end of the year. In November, Y5 were lucky enough to get a surprise visit and class workshop with the man himself. Year 5 were absolutely delighted when they found out he was coming to see us! A celebrity at Linacre!!
During the workshop, Frank Cottrell-Boyce inspired us so much. He explained that he himself doesn't get his writing right first time and that it's ok to edit as then something amazing can come out from the editing process. Frank also left the children some stimulus to inspire their next piece of writing. What do you think? This picture has also inspired The Grinch, Shrek and Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Can you see these characters within the picture?
