L4 Author Trip
Monday 6th October 2014
On Thursday 25 September, our L4 pupils travelled to Highdown School in Reading to hear bestselling children’s author, Michelle Paver, talk about her writing and her latest novel ‘The Eye of the Falcon.’ Annabel, L4, provides us with a review of the trip:
“Last week all of the L4 year group went on a trip up to Highdown School. In the afternoon we all walked up the road. The walk took us around 20 minutes but it didn’t matter that much because the weather was lovely. Once we got there we all walked into a hall. It was set out with rows of chairs for us to sit on. I sat next to Ellen and Amy.
Michelle Paver was really interesting. She told us all about the main characters in her new series, ‘Gods and Warriors’. The two main characters were Hylas and Pirra. Hylas was poor and worked on a farm and Pirra was very rich. Michelle Paver told us lots of interesting facts about the time the story was set in, like purple was the most expensive colour. She told us what it was like to be an author. She told us useful tips and advice if we want to be an author. It was a great day!”
