How lucky we are that Europe’s largest festival for children’s books is on our doorstep!

This year the English Faculty took 85 Year 5’s and 6’s to meet Radio 1 DJ Greg James (author of Kid Normal) at his interactive, DJ drama show.

Our very own Mr Littlewood ,was invited on to the stage to play the evil villain, in a story created by the audience themselves!

A few days later, famous Book Tuber and vlogger Lucy Powrie came in to Selwood Academy to meet a Year 8 class and share her secret tips about writing your own story. Her first book all about ‘fitting in’ ,was published when she was a teenager, and is now very successful indeed.
