A.I.M High writing workshop with Seth Burkett

A.I.M High writing workshop with Seth Burkett


Children from Years 5 and 6 had the opportunity to go to Glade Primary school for a biography-writing workshop with Seth Burkett, an English writer and futsal player and former professional footballer.

Our children were introduced to the different types of biography. Together, the group came up with interesting points that a biography should cover. After discussing some examples, tools to quickly draw readers' attention and add suspense were shared. Following this, the children started to write some amazing autobiographies about their own lives.

Next up, children worked in pairs to ghost write the first chapter of each other's autobiographies. They interviewed each other, coming up with interesting questions to ensure interesting answers. Writers were encouraged to listen carefully to the way their partner spoke, noticing any slang or favourite words they heard so that they can expertly catch their subject's voice.

The final part of the workshop asked the children to come up with a biography of Usain Bolt. They watched a clip from when Usain Bolt won the 100m London 2012 Olympics and had to describe that special moment in their biographies.

The children set such a wonderful example and represented Clore Tikva in such a positive way. In fact, the other schools that attended were blown away by our enthusiasm, English skills and knowledge!
