It is always exciting to have authors in school or to go and meet an author at another school. This half term we have been fortunate to have Caroline Lawrence visit during book week and since our last newsletter the amazing Spooks author Joseph Delaney came to talk to Year 8 English groups about his writing and new books on Thursday 30th March.

Joseph visited Canon Slade in 2009 and actually opened our refurbished library in 2006. So it was lovely to see him again.
At break Joseph called in to the library and met one of his biggest fans who had his collection of books ready to be signed

Now available separately for the first time, and including a preview of the first chapter of I Am Grimalkin, this is perfect for existing fans and newcomers alike.
