Last Thursday, Upper School were visited by local children's book author Ruth Wheeler. She came in to introduce her books from The Truxxe Trilogy - about a roadside cafe in space. Ruth told the children about herself, being an author and how she got the idea for the trilogy. She read an extract from one of her books to introduce the characters and setting. Ruth then told the children how she came to write her latest novel and the children were asked questions related to the book regarding famous people (e.g. who would they like to meet if they had a time machine). Q&As from the children followed.
Lastly, Ruth set the children the task of designing and describing an alien, planet or space ship. The children were really inspired and produced some truly amazing creations which we will display in the front entrance after half term. Ruth then returned on Friday morning to sell and sign her books to the rather excited children. Thank you Ruth - your visit was truly out of this world!
