On Tuesday 11th October, Years 3 and 4 had the privilege of attending a workshop by BAFTA and Emmy Award winning author Andy Riley, author of King Flashypants and the Evil Emperor.
They had a fantastically funny session where Andy took them on a whirlwind tour of the life of Edwin, King Flashypants himself and Edwinland, his Kingdom. Andy explained how he created the characters and his inspiration for the setting of the story. As he illustrated the book himself too, Andy also drew lots of hilarious sketches based on crazy ideas from the children, including Mr Smart and Mr Brierley riding a unicorn on a rainbow!
It was a brilliant session that the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed. We are looking forward to having more authors in school later in the year.
