'Where's Wally?' Creative Writing Competition (2018)

We took part in an exciting new writing competition. Using Where's Wally? scenes as inspiration, pupils put themselves into Wally's shoes to describe a new scene he has found himself in. Children will make use of descriptive language to describe their chosen scene on the back of their postcard as well as drawing a picture of their scene on the front.

 

Visual literacy is the idea that images can be read and that meaning can be drawn by interpreting pictures. Exploring imagery in books is an important aspect for the development of literacy skills overall.

 

"Wordless picture books connect visual literacy skills, cultural literacy (learning the characteristics and expectations of social groups) and literacy with print (learning to read and write language)"  Mary Jalongo. (2002).

Here are some of the quotes from the children based on their time with Rob Lloyd Jones. The children particularly enjoyed his stories about how he first became enthused for books after reading Robin Hood. They enjoyed the stories of the Crusades, and how he decided on Wild Boy the story after learning a lot about children in Victorian London.

 

"Rob Lloyd Jones' visit inspired me to always keep reading so one day when I get older I might become a writer like him." Danae, St Monica    

 

"I'm now going to try my best in everything, because I need to battle my way through life's difficulties if I want to be a great person like Rob." Rannel, St Monica

 

"Rob Lloyd Jones inspired me because he couldn't read and would always cause a tantrum, and now he is an amazing author. I will now try and read more books." Sirr, St Monica

 

The class teacher said that there was a unanimous groan when Rob had to leave the classroom, they loved having him in.

5 schools (St Francis de Sales, Risley, Devonshire Hill, Lancasterine, and St Paul's and All Hallows') took part in a fun and engaging Spell Off. Each team was divided into two children who competed in the ‘Spell off’ and took on the challenge of spelling alone. The remainder of each team worked together to complete the Conundrum challenge.
