Library News – Guest Author Visit for Year 4-6 Students 

Students in Year 4, 5 and 6 participated in writing workshops on Friday 7 May with Australian author, Tim Harris. Tim is the author of the Exploding Endings, Mr Bambuckle’s Remarkables and Toffle Towers series of books for Primary school children. He is a former teacher and plays drums in his church band.   

Tim shared hacks for writing great stories, including how to create interesting characters and settings, the importance of planning before you write, and how paragraphs and punctuation add impact to stories. 

During first break, Tim met with students from the 2021 Year 5 Readers’ Cup Team and the 2020 Year 5 Readers’ Cup Team. Toffle Towers is one of the books selected for the competition this year.   

Kind regards,
