On Thursday, we were lucky enough to start the day with an assembly by Kirsty Applebaum author of “The Middler”. She told us about her journey to becoming an author and how this developed from her love of reading stories as a child. She showed us how she plans her writing and where she likes to write. Kirsty then read some extracts of “The Middler” to us and gave us a preview of her new book. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Year 6 were then lucky enough to have workshops throughout the day where they had the chance to work further with Kirsty and produced some amazing poetry. Thanks to the Cypress PTFA for funding Kirsty’s visit as part of Book Week.
