9th November: Creative Writing

Let the Viking exhibition the ‘Hoard and the Sword’ ignite your imagination and creativity in this interactive workshop with poet and author Terry McDonagh. A follow up classroom session at your school can be arranged.

The students and teachers got a lot out of it and really enjoyed it. I will most definitely be recommending these sort of workshops to other teachers it really was brilliant
