We were delighted to welcome the award-winning author, Ali Sparks, to our school today. In two entertaining and interactive presentations, pupils from Years 6 and 7 were given an insight into her ideas and inspiration for writing her books,’ Frozen in Time, and ‘Car-Jacked’ She read extracts from both of these novels and signed copies of her books too. Over 80 books were sold prior to her visit and I am sure many more will be purchased or borrowed over the coming months.
Some lucky Year 6 pupils were able to complete a workshop session with her entitled ‘The X Factor’. This challenge involved working in groups to come up with ideas for the title of a new book which they then wrote the blurb and opening paragraph for, before voting for their favourite.
Examples of their work will be published shortly on the website.
