Year 9 pupil Laura-Jay lets us into her head, her work and her homework as she writes a scary story, shares her inspirations and narrates her creative process.

[Note: the text of Laura's story is given in early drafts. Laura later proof read and corrected her text with her teacher's help]

      A fantastic film which emphasises the importance of the process of writing.I am particularly impressed with the teacher's success in encouraging the students to reflect on and improve their work and their evident enthusiasm for doing this.Great to see a student openly expressing their love of writing and a teacher specifically allocating time for reflection and crafting during the lesson.This could be a very positive 'model' for students to watch.Well done Laura and well done Siobhan Moyes - love the 'haunted house'image on the power point!!!!
