Anglo Saxons writing workshop (KS1-KS2-KS3)
Get your students writing epic Anglo Saxon stories with a workshop and assembly from Creative Writing Club founder Robin Price. Robin is the author of 15 children's books including the cult hit Beowuff series – where Anglo Saxon dogs battle against Viking dogs in a world where humans have never existed.
Get pupils engaged and ready to write with an assembly introducing the class to the fascinating world of the Saxons and their sagas. You'll hear tales of dragons, rings, witches and the warrior Beowulf. Find out about kennings (Saxon slang) and legendary kings. In this interactive assembly your class will: take their place in the shield wall and hear of King Alfred's battle against the norse invaders! The assembly ends as two class champions battle each other in a fun quiz. This assembly can look at Saxons on their own or compare them to the Vikings.
Epic story writing
After the assembly pupils will be primed and ready to write their stories in pairs using Creative Writing Club's foolproof interactive apps.

Feedback from teachers:
“Robin’s assembly was a fantastic combination of facts, story telling and knockabout comedy, that, whilst entertaining the whole school, also cunningly prepared the ground for their own story writing…”
“Robin’s sessions not only gave children a structure for planning a story, but really excited and inspired them so that they couldn’t wait to get writing!” Richard Smith, Deputy Head, Trafalgar School
This workshop is sure to generate some strong writing which we can upload to our epic Hall of Fame.
