ANSWERING the "W" questions was the challenge for pupils at Studlands Rise School in Royston.

The school's annual book week was marked by a visit from the Big Foot Theatre company, who held a series of workshops aimed at developing the children's creative writing.

Through the character Ann Author, the group reminded children about the importance of "W" questions - where, when, who, what, and why - when undertaking story writing.

The pupils were then encouraged to develop their own story ideas in class.
