An Ipswich Primary School has received a special visit from an award winning children’s writer.
Timeliners author Stewart Ross visited Claydon Primary School to talk to pupils there about what its like to be an author as well as giving them advice on how to improve their own writing.
Students from year’s 4, 5 and 6 were then tasked with writing their own story opening with signed books being given to those that were judged to be the best.
Joel, a year 6 student, was one of the winners; “after listening to the author in the task I tried to add suspense into my writing to make the reader want to read on. I was astonished when I was picked as a winner and can’t wait to now read his book.”
Mr Stewart stayed back afterschool day to chat with parents and students and to sign copies of his books.
