The Laude Lady Elizabeth Junior School received a visit from an award winning children’s author, Guy Bass. Guy, an internationally recognised author, has written titles such as the phenomenally successful ´Stitch Head´, ´Spynosaur´, ´The Legend of Frog´ and ´Atomic´.

During the day, Guy held two workshops: one for Years 2 and 3 and a slighter longer one for Years 4, 5 and 6. The overall aim of the workshops was to inspire, delight and enthral the children by explaining how he came to be a writer, what inspired him to write his books and where he collects his ideas from for future stories. Guy´s delivery was superbly placed for children; full of energy and wonderful humour, which had the children (and some staff) rolling in laughter! Later in the day, Guy held a book signing session, during which he signed every book the children purchased, spending a few moments to chat with each child. The day was a fantastic success, well received by pupils, teachers and parents alike. Undoubtedly he has inspired many young children to further improve their reading and writing.
