Library Launch with author Hayley Barker
We launched our brand new library on Friday with a special visit from author Hayley Barker. Hayley is the author of Show Stopper, a dystopian fantasy that inspired various workshops throughout the day.
Hayley read part of her novel to our pupils and sparked discussions relating to the books very relevant social themes. The sessions helped students prepare to write their own dystopian fiction, in line with the scheme of learning they are currently studying. They began to create their own protagonists, settings and first paragraphs.
The resulting pieces of work are going on display in our English corridor, so do keep a look out for these. Our pupils enjoyed all of the workshops and Hayley also stated that she had ‘a wonderful time.’ Look out for Hayley’s books in the library and please do complete a review for other learners to read!
