A writing workshop was held for pupils at Dorney County School on Tuesday.
Steve Jones, international rugby correspondent for The Sunday Times, spoke to Year Four about his writing for the national paper.
Prizes were then handed out by Steve for models they had made at the school in Dorney Reach.
John Dawns, deputy head teacher said: "We've been doing a writing project and they have been practicing writing eight different genres.
"They then had to create a model which went with their project.
"Steve took the time to read though everyone's work, he told them the key to great writing is to include emotion and passion.
"The project has motivated them to be more enthusiastic about writing, it's really been a win-win for the school."
As part of the project, pupils wrote letters to companies and received responses from Apple and the Natural History Museum
