Whitchurch Literacy Project

Creative writing works by pupils from primary schools in Whitchurch and the surrounding area was exhibited at a special celebration evening hosted at Sir John Talbot’s School last week.

The project has seen teachers from: Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery School, Whitchurch CE Junior School, Tilstock Primary School, Lower Heath CE Primary School and Sir John Talbot’s all working together.

The year-long project was inspired by the books of American author and illustrator Aaron Becker – creator of the popular Journey trilogy and formerly an animator on films such as The Polar Express and Cars.

Mr David O’Toole, Headteacher at Sir John Talbot’s School – who are behind the initiative – commented: “Teachers from a number of schools representing the different stages of education in the town had been working together to share ideas and planning with each other. The aim of the project was to continue to improve standards of written work across the town and to engage pupils in the creative side of writing. We have been delighted with the quality of work that was produced and it was a fantastic event on 12 July”.

Parents and carers, pupils and staff from all the schools involved in the project, were invited to attend the celebration event at Sir John Talbot’s School on Thursday 12 July and it delivered a wonderful event.

The celebration event was ‘gallery style’ with the completed work displayed in the school hall. As well as displays of written work, there was artistic pieces on display by and live music to enjoy.
