The amazing Frank Cottrell Boyce author visited Canon Slade School on Friday 22 March.
His visit followed the celebration of Book Week and World Book Day at the beginning of March. Frank was invited to talk to all year 7 and 8 students about his journey as an author and shared extracts from his book ‘Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth.’
He encouraged students to be confident with words just as people are good at maths and sport. Students who pre-ordered his books took part in a special book signing session at lunch time before the talks. Congratulations to the winners of the competitions to win a signed copy of one of his book; Kathy Udall, Mia Stokes and Aimee Rowley.
“He is an amazing author and has written many adventure and funny books and the students asked many interesting questions at the end of his talk.”
“Frank was inspirational and I really enjoyed listening to his words.”
