As their final act of 2017, the talented authors of Year 5 tried their hand at writing narratives based on the story of Dracula.  Using the book as a stimulus, the Year 5’s were given the task of writing their own final chapter to the story.

In groups, the children began by story-boarding their ideas for a final chapter, before using drama to bring their creations to life. They then recorded a series of freeze frames against a green screen, which the children later used to set their own images and narration to using the iPads.

With their ideas firmly in place, Year 5 set to their task by writing their own narratives using the Chromebooks. Take a look at some examples of their work to see just how skilled the writers of Colegrave really are:
