Literacy-loving pupils have enjoyed a day of workshops and reading sessions led by Jo Sennitt of the Library Services for Education.
John Ferneley College pupils in years seven and nine immersed themselves in storytelling and fun sketches to help improve their creative writing.
Librarian Mrs Newman said: “Jo brought in various props which really helped engage the children and help them with amazing story ideas.
“It was a fun and very creative day with fantastic feedback from those who took part.
“Students in year seven valued the experience and said it had helped to develop their creative skills; believing their writing to benefit in the long term.
“Feedback from our year nines was equally as positive. Many found the session to be inspiring offering great tips and advice on how to develop their own story ideas.”
The college has organised more workshops next month.
