On Thursday 6th October 2011, some students from Year 8 along with Mrs Beeson and Mrs Coates, went to Warwick Arts Centre to see the acclaimed author Kevin Crossley-Holland.  Whilst there, as some of the students have written about and illustrated, they learnt about Crossley-Holland’s life, books and style of writing.

He talked about some of his books, including his current, historic and exciting Viking novel, ‘Bracelet of Bones’ from which he read some extracts, holding the audience’s attention.  There was also time for questions and Kevin Crossley-Holland gave useful advice to potential writers.  Some of our students were particularly delighted to get their copies of his novel signed and all said how much they enjoyed the trip.  Check out the displays in school.
