Visit by Camilla Chester, Children’s Author

Year 5 and 6 were visited by children’s author, Camilla Chester, today. They spent an enjoyable afternoon learning about the life of an author and being given tips on how to write a book, such as ‘write like you’re a reader and read like you’re a writer’! They also took part in a writing game with a child from Year 5 and Year 6 dressing up as key characters from Camilla’s book, ‘Jarred Dreams’.

The children were all thoroughly engaged and came away from the afternoon with a much greater insight into what effort goes into writing a book.
