Senior Book Week
3rd Mar 2014

In preparation for All Hallows’ Senior Book Week, local children’s author, Annabel Claridge, visited the school on Friday and spoke to the Year 7 pupils about her three books, based around a time-travelling poodle, Bo, whose adventures take place in Britain, alongside King Charles, Ancient Egypt, alongside Cleopatra, and North America, alongside the Lakota Sioux ‘Crazy Horse’.  Ms Claridge spoke about her inspiration for these books, the history behind each story and she also went through both the creative and practical processes of writing and making a book.  The talk was fascinating and both staff and pupils enjoyed Ms Claridge’s tales.  Ms Claridge has two new books, soon to be published, and these are thrillers, aimed at 11+ children.  We look forward to hearing about these soon.
