Year 7 and 8 pupils were entertained by author, Mark Walden, as part of the school’s annual Book Week. The students were fascinated by the insight he gave them into the world of writing.
Mark Walden is the award-winning author of the H.I.V.E. series and the Earthfall trilogy. Pupils in Year 7 produced some excellent work in Art based on Mark Walden’s H.I.V.E series, they designed characters and their costumes for the stories.
The pupils have been inspired by Mark Walden’s visit and have enjoyed Book Week very much. Book Week is one of the ways in which year 7 pupils are integrated into school life and encouraged to read.
During the course of the first term a number of book-related competitions have taken place and over 120 prizes will be distributed at the prize giving ceremony on Thursday 31st March. The school is pleased to welcome local author and historian, Jennifer Blake, to present the prizes.
