Jason Beresford had the whole of Juniors laughing...

  Through the power of storytelling, all the Junior girls learnt how to develop their own superpowers!  Jason Beresford, author of ‘Fabulous Fish Fingers’, shared some of his inspiration and storytelling powers with all the Junior pupils.

An assembly full of laughter started the day, as Jason read the first chapter of ‘Fabulous Fish Fingers’ and introduced us to his main characters: Gary, Ruby, Bel and Morris.  He joined the girls in acting out the moment the characters got their superpowers, before teaching everyone a song about ‘The Panteater’.

During the day the girls in Years 1 – 5 benefited from a writing workshop, where Jason guided every pupil into starting their own story, based on a child who develops superpowers and defeats a villain.  Year 5 also enjoyed looking through Jason’s comic collection, which inspired his writing career.
