Writing with renowned children's author Lisa Thompson

Children’s Author Lisa Thompson, bestselling author of The Goldfish Bowl, The Light Jar and The Day I Was Erased, visited our year 7 students on Thursday 27th February 2020.

She spoke with all of year 7 about her life as a writer, the inspiration for her books and a very interesting quiz about some of the unusual art that has inspired her work.

She also ran a special writing workshop for selected year 7 students, where they were encouraged to use their senses to write a story. She brought in different sights, sounds and smells to inspire our students.

Our year 7 students were well behaved and engaged throughout her visit and they come up with some very creative ideas in the writing workshop.

It was a delight to welcome Lisa to our school and she left this message for our students:

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for inviting me to your school yesterday afternoon.

I had a really lovely time and thank you for such a warm welcome!

Happy reading to you all.", Lisa
