Step Back in Time

 

Year 4 have stepped back in time this week in order to live life as WWII evacuees.

Writing Workshops

 

Pupils at Dorset House School in Bury were treated to a writer’s visit with a difference last Tuesday when author Philip Womack came to see them.

Mr Womack attended Dorset House in the 1980s before moving on to Lancing College and Oxford.

As well as talking about the process of becoming a writer and reading from The King’s Shadow - his most recent book, listed as one of the 12 best summer reads of 2015 by the Independent on Sunday – Mr Womack was able to regal students with tales of school life in his day and shared how he had used Bury Manor House as the setting for his first novel, The Other Book.

In the afternoon, girls and boys in Years 7 and 8 took part in a workshop; exploring various settings around the school and the village church, and then using these in their own writing.

It remains to be seen whether any of these students will go on to become writers in the future – but Mr Womack’s visit certainly showed the children that it can be done!
