St Benedict’s School, Whole School Literacy Mural Project.
This was a very inclusive project. Lynne ran a series of creative writing workshops across all year groups at the school. Students looked at a diverse range of writers and at different aspects of literacy and creative writing. The students came up with a series of their own poems and quotations in response to the workshops, they also researched famous quotes from history and the current day across a range of genres. The workshops informed the design of the literacy mural and students came up with ideas, designs and compositions for the final mural.
Lynne said, ‘’I was delighted to see the students coming up with so many creative ideas in the workshops, the final quotes we used were really thought provoking.’’
