Huw Powell- Author Visit- Friday 13th January
The pupils at BJS were treated to an hour of inspiration this morning, in the form of an author visit from Huw Powell!
Huw came to speak to us about writing his 'Space Jackers' series and there was a real buzz in the school hall from start to finish.
The Space Jackers books are based on an army of Space Pirates and Huw asked for our ideas about what one might look like. 'Captain Barbara Pig Man' was created, wearing some very interesting items of clothing!
We had a fantastic morning, with the chance for pupils to buy and have one of his books signed. The creativity carried on into the classroom, with space pirate stories being written in many classes.
Thank you for a fantastic morning Huw!
