For a special World Book Day assembly, we were joined by Kate Cunningham who is the author of the Vlad series of books. All of Kate's children's books are based on the flea "Vlad" and his adventures in different periods of time.
We were particularly lucky, as this was her second visit to the school!
During the assembly, members of the school council asked Kate a range of questions about being an author. We found out that Kate didn't get nervous when she was writing a book but she was nervous when it was published as she hoped that people would enjoy it. In our opinion, she shouldn't worry because we loved her books!
She also shared some top tips about editing her work. First of all, she reads the book aloud to herself and then she asks her children to read the book to her. Lots of classes were keen to try these techniques with their next piece of writing!
Throughout the day, different classes also had the opportunity to complete a writing workshop with Kate.
We are all now eagerly awaiting the release of her next book!
