Year 3 have really enjoyed getting stuck into book writing and becoming authors. They have spent two terms concentrating on characterisation, settings and using a ‘Story Mountain’ to develop their story ideas. The Year 3 teachers decided that the pupils could publish their own books, by making and designing their own ‘Single Signature Books’.
“It was hard but fun. The most challenging part was coming up with ideas that were unique and the part I found most enjoyable was illustrating my book” Alexandra.
The pupils made their covers for their books covering thick card with marbling sheets making individual bindings. Then they looked at many different books and discussed what a book has that makes each one individual. Pupils used these ideas and created their individual books, with the features that they liked. Every one of the books is unique and have made the Year 3 pupils first time published authors.
“The most enjoyable part for me was typing up my story on the computer and the part I found the hardest was getting all my ideas together ready to write my story” Jasmine.
On Friday 24 June the Year 3’s hosted a Book Launch and invited parents to come along to show off their work. They made business cards and posters which they handed out at the book launch to promote their books.
