Celebrating Authors in Maidenhead’s Amphitheatre
The sunshine has started Year 6 thinking about their summer reading this year... and a trip to see author Helen Dennis in Maidenhead's new Amphitheatre really inspired their selections for the holidays.
Year 6 escaped the heat with a lovely, breezy walk down to Maidenhead Library for the RBWM's first ever ‘Author In the Round’ event. Being the first to arrive, the girls ruthlessly nabbed all the shade and were able to enjoy a great event with an author perfect for developing and maturing readers. It may have been both the hottest and the longest day of the year, but the Year 6 Junior Girls were ready with their umbrellas to hear Helen Dennis explain all about her series of fantasy adventures and code-breaking thrillers - the perfect genre to keep pulses racing all through the summer! The ice cream on the way back went down well too! (Thank you Mr. Laouira...)
