Energetic Author Gets Students Thinking About History
Alex Scarrow, who writes the popular Time Riders series, spoke to Year 7s about how even small events in history had such a big effect on our lives now.
He discussed his books and the process of writing them as well as emphasising the importance of writing.
Alex (pictured) used to be a computer game designer and he explained to the year group how he weaved ideas for games into his books.
He finished with a general knowledge quiz in the style of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Librarian Amy McKay said: "The students were completely entranced. Alex was a really excitable speaker and he was really good fun."
