Together Students Achieve

White Water Writers come to Sutton!

We are very lucky to welcome White Water Writers to our Academy to work with several students in Years 7 and 8 in order to write two novels!

The students have been working in small teams - led by specialist writers developing a variety of new skills in order to create texts which will be published on Amazon.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students to immerse themselves in creative writing - and subsequently encourage their independence as the writers of the future.  They have been introduced to a variety of new skills including:

  • Creating believable characters
  • Designing an engaging plot
  • Describing settings using varied vocabulary
  • Using a range of punctuation for effect
  • Drafting, proof reading and editing
  • The business of writing a novel

Keep a sharp look out for the books which will be published in the coming months!
