Year 5 and 6 were very Lucky to have Jamila Gavin, the Indian born, British author visit the school on Friday.
Jamila shared, with the children, stories from her incredible childhood and shared her passion and enthusiasm for writing. She read extracts from her book 'Blackberry Blue' and shared her inspirations for the book and experiences of being a writer.
The children had lots of opportunity to ask Jamila many intriguing questions about her, as an author and about being a writer. The children came away from the experience inspired to start writing.
