Words of Sport with author David Brayley

What a fantastic morning we have had working with the successful author, David Brayley!

Using the sporting theme of Cricket we were challenged to develop our vocabulary by using rich and precise language to describe the feelings and emotions of cricketer Matt Prior. Exhilarated, exuberant and passionate are just some of the examples of language we used…Wow!

We developed this to watching video clips and handling cricket equipment that belonged to Matt Prior and Mike Yardy to act as a stimulus for writing.

Using rich vocabulary and our senses we planned our story of being at an exciting cricket match and then the writing process began – I waited for my turn to bat…

We have definitely got some talented authors of the future! Well done boys and girls…We are very impressed!
