Author Visit for Year 7

Jonathan Stroud, author of the “Bartimaeus” and “Lockwood and Co.”series of books visited Year 7 pupils on Wednesday 11th March to talk about his work  He entertained pupils with anecdotes of his writing career and many of the pupils either bought books or borrowed them from the library afterwards.

Hmmm - do the pupils recognise that face? Perhaps when they lose a library book....?

 

 

 

 

 

Jonathan also explained how he developed his characters and demonstrated further by asking one of the pupils to dress up like Lockwood, the ghost hunter from his “Lockwood and Co.” series.
