Writing is an adventure for a group of boys at Glusburn Primary School.

They’re heading out of the classroom in search of exciting experiences worth putting pen to paper for.

The trips will give them fuel for thrilling stories and gripping non-fiction assignments.

Six students have joined the Dangerous Boys’ Writing Club, set up by headteacher, Richard Hunt.

He plans to take them around the village, to a wooded area in the school grounds and to nearby Glusburn Wood.

Mr Hunt said: “It’s to inspire and improve the children’s writing and get them reading – they will ‘live it’ and see things.”

The boys were each given a writing journal at the end of last term, and talked about the kind of writing they would like to do. They decided to write letters to their heroes, such as guitarist Slash from rock band Guns and Roses and racing driver Jenson Button.
