A very special announcement

At the end of the last academic year, one of our children entered a competition to create a story character for the new Alex Sparrow book.

This girl created a character named Harry the Horse and even made a sculpture of him. Today, we Skyped the author, Jennifer Killick, who announced that this little girl had won the competition! Harry the Horse will be written into the new novel and will even feature on the front cover!

A visit from Laura Ellen Anderson

The children took part in a workshop on Friday with an author; Laura Ellen Anderson. Laura read some of her new Amelia Fang book, answered questions from the children, showed them how to draw pet pumpkins and how to write a revolting recipe. She also signed books for children who were able to buy one.
