On Wednesday 24th September, Year 5
and Year 6 were invited to Kingston Grammar School to meet visiting author
As she explained, her first set of books were set in the Stone Age and her
latest series are set in the Bronze Age. She explained how she takes her
research seriously and doesn't use Google to find out about situations she is
going to write about, but gets out there and experiences it herself.
She showed us a variety of items she has collected on her travels and
explained how you could find out if an axe head was suited to your size, and
the many uses you can put a reindeer antler too.
The event ended with the children having their chosen book signed and an
opportunity to put their own questions to this inspiring, adventurous,
highly talented writer.
Thanks to Kingston Grammar School for the invitation.
