Year 7 Book Club trip to Alexandra Palace

In book club this term, Year 7 have been reading the six books shortlisted for the Alexandra Palace Children’s Book Award. On Friday they found out the winner at a ceremony at Alexandra Palace attended by four of the authors. They heard from each of the authors in a Q&A and did a workshop with Polly Ho-Yen, who encouraged them to draw on their everyday experiences in their creative writing and to doodle for inspiration. After the ceremony they were able to meet the authors and have their books signed.
