Visit by Elen Caldecott Author of ‘Spooks and Scooters’Posted on 6th June 2017 | News | Uncategorised
As a prize for an outstanding video entry to the Reading Gladiators Challenge, Year 4 Reading Gladiators had lunch with Elen Caldecott author of Spooks and Scooters and Nikki Gamble in the school library. Year 4 Gladiators had the opportunity to chat to Elen in an informal way and ask questions about being a writer. Some children received signed copies of books from the Marsh Road Mystery series that their parents had ordered. Others took the chance to ask Elen about different books they had read from the Marsh Mystery series.
Elen then led an inspirational session in the hall to a wider audience of Year 4s and 5s. So many children have commented how much they enjoyed talking to a “real writer”! It was a lovely afternoon and Elen kept her audience spellbound!
