Debbie Edwards – Author Talk

This morning Years 3-6 were treated to a talk by Debbie Edwards who is a Norfolk based author. It was a most useful way to spend an hour with Debbie working through the process by which novels are constructed. Much hilarity was had as Noah attempted to claim the golden cup to save his village by battling rivers, enchanted forests and ogres. Well done Noah and all involved in this particular skit. After this Debbie highlighted the delights of the world of fantasy and how anything can be used as a prompt for the imagination. The children were a credit to St Nicks and listened attentively and contributed well when called upon. I think the part that showed how much the children took from the hour were the questions at the end where they showed thoughtfulness and understanding of what had gone before. Marvellous. We look forward to Debbie returning in the future. If you are interested in finding out more about Debbie here is her website: http://www.purpleraypublishing.co.uk/
