Boys Writing Group 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Boys Writing Group

We have our new members to the writing group and the boys have already made an amazing start to writing this year. Take a look closely at Boys Writing in the About Us section of our website. Keep a look out for new themes this academic year.

We held a creative remembrance writing and art day and welcomed the author Michael Thame to our school:


Michael read extracts of his book A Pig Squeal at Midnight to our KS2 pupils. Then our Boys Writing Group had the opportunity to speak with Michael and ask some questions about how he became an author and his inspirations.  The boy group led this special day in school and inspired children across the school to write as creatively as possible. Look on our display board for the whole school writing examples. They are just so emotional and beautiful to read. 

We have also had author Ian Thompson joining us for a Dragon theme day. The whole school were inspired to write about dragons.  It was such an amazing day and we now have Ian and Drainage as members of our Boys Writing Group!

We visited Sky High Adventure on a trip. They created some excellent posters about the skills you needed to climb and conquer your fears of heights.



One of our regular places to visit is Manchester Squash Centre. We are building a special relationship up with the centre and our boys thrive meeting professional squash players. Our boys learned about a sport that many did not know about. They watched professional England players compete against other countries in long and gruelling matches. Our pupils could not believe the high levels of fitness needed to play squash and move around the small court.


We have met George Parker a professional squash player, who took to time to talk to us about the game. This was an amazing experience, which has inspired the boys to write and play the game. We have done many pieces of writing, which can be viewed here or on our display. We have also sent them to the Squash Centre for them to display.

Remember boys keep enjoying writing and putting all your effort into making it the best work you do!
