KS3 Author Visit


Local author, Graham Cawser, came into Key Stage 3 to do some workshops on his book: 'The Heroes of Elwhen'. He talked to students about how he creates names for characters, students really enjoyed making up their own names and creating characters for their own stories. Graham also talked to students about how he illustrates his book and students did some fantastic illustrations of their own for the characters in the story. Graham is going to visit Key Stage 3 again in a few weeks to have a look at all their work on his book.

In the afternoon, some students went to WHSmiths where they participated in a book cover illustration competition. James won the competition and was able to choose any book as his prize! Students all spent their £1 book tokens and enjoyed reading their new books when they got back to school.
