Education for the 21st Century (E21C), provided a motivational day of creative writing for local primary schools on Tuesday, January 16.
The multi-academy trust welcomed children from Blenheim, Mottingham and Scott’s Park primary to the Ravensbourne School, where they took part in a morning of imaginative story writing.
A celebratory assembly where the children were given the chance to showcase their stories took place afterwards.
E21C have collaborated with Pobble, a company committed to inspiring the next generation of writers, to give 500 children the opportunity to improve their writing skills The schools will continue to inspire their students with help from Pobble, with each class appointing two ‘Pobble Champions’ to continue the initiative.
Using the global platform, the children have the opportunity to become published authors, sharing their own writing with others.
Marion Drake, executive headteacher of E21C Trust Primaries, said: “Part of the school’s ethos is to help children develop and nurture their talents, and today’s Pobble Conference has done exactly that.
“It is fantastic to see the children energised and excited about writing.”
