The Coleshill School hosted a visit from Dave Rudden, children’s author, as part of his tour to celebrate the publication of his debut fantasy novel ‘Knights of the Borrowed Dark’.
Children in Years 5 and 6 from Coleshill CE Primary, St Edward’s RC Primary and Woodlands School joined students in Year 7 from The Coleshill School.
It was a great opportunity for all the students to meet an author. Dave drew them into the fantasy world of his new book with interactive activities during the morning.
Ian Smith-Childs, headteacher, said:
The children were really excited to meet the author of a published book and have a copy of the book signed by him. Dave gave them inspiration and encouragement for their own reading and writing. The visit was a real success.
