Dan Worsley was commissioned to deliver a 6 week writing project in our school. Dan enthused and engaged the pupils from the start, through sharing his own writing examples and teaching them his techniques. High level language was modelled and the children planned their writing with Dan, ‘magpieing’ ideas along the way. Staff accessed his sessions as part of their CPD to support them in developing their own teaching and modelling of writing skills. Each session layered the learning and in the days following each session the children transformed their planning into quality written pieces. Dan is an excellent role model and his dynamic personality cannot fail to excite those he works with.
