Author Visit -  Mark Powers

We had a fabulous time when Mark Powers came to visit. He told us all about being an author and how readers become good writers. In year 3, we practised writing techniques such as 'Show not Tell' to make our writing really interesting for our reader.

Later we were able to meet Mark 1:1 and he signed our very own Spy Toys books.

We can't wait for his next book to be released early next year!


Thank you all for your fantastic support! We raised a masssive £170.00 in commision to spend on books for school. Well done everyone for all your minutes adn hours spent reading.You are awesome!
