Discussion and Creation as Author Visits
We were delighted to welcome author Jo Cotterill to the School last week. Jo has written many popular and critically acclaimed books for young people, including ‘Library of Lemons’, ‘A Storm of Strawberries’, ‘Looking at the Stars’ and ‘Jelly’.
During the morning, Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in lively workshops, talking about writing and creating stories. Jo shared her early years, including when she started to write, and how some of the books she’d written were created.
Years 7 and 8 discussed some of the themes in ‘Jelly’ and Year 9 helped to create a dystopian story with a very dramatic plotline!
The visit ended after lunch, when everyone had the opportunity to meet Jo and have their books signed.
