On Monday Year 2 and 3 were lucky enough to visit the author John Dougherty. He told us the traditional story of Finn McCool, the giant what created the Giant’s causeway in Ireland. John was really funny and answered lots of our questions. We also had some time to think about our own giants and began writing our own stories.
John talked to us about how to become authors. It is important that we always take time to think, because our brains need time to fizz, if we are able to do our best writing. This means sometimes it takes a little bit more time, but our teachers are going to try and make sure we have enough time for our ideas to flourish. We are looking forward to turning our giant stories into books.
