On Tuesday the Year 8 students had the opportunity to meet one of our writers in residence, Jon Mayhew. They have been studying his novel ‘Mortlock’ since September and this was a wonderful opportunity for students to ask questions and find out more information about both the novel and being an author.
Students had a opportunity to work with Jon on their writing skills during the day, as well as a chance to purchase a personally signed copy of one of Jon’s novels.
Jon had such an amazing day he sent the following message:
“Thanks so much for a brilliant day. It was so well-organised and the children knew exactly where to be at the right time. The pupils were a credit to the school, being polite and well-disciplined at all times. I really enjoyed listening to their ideas and working with them on their writing.”
