Author Helen Dennis Visits Junior Girls
The cold weather didn't spoil World Book Day at Claires Court Junior Girls!
The girls provided a very warm welcome to our visiting author, Helen Dennis, author of the ‘River of Ink’ series and the ‘Secret Breakers’ adventures, which are soon to be made into a TV series.
Not only did Helen enjoy a lovely hot lunch with the Year 6 Reading Group, who have been reading ‘River of Ink: Genesis’ in preparation for her visit, she heated up the girls' brain activity with code breaking puzzles and activities as part of her presentation!
Helen also shared the secrets of her own success - what inspired her to become a writer when she was in Year 3 and how she finds ideas for her stories.
Pupils had the opportunity to buy signed copies of some of her novels on the day.
