Prep School Author Events
Tuesday 10th & Wednesday 11th October 2017
Each year we try to make sure that all boys in the Prep School meet an author. The boys always enjoy these events and the experience helps to stimulate their interest in both reading and writing.
On Tuesday, LP1 boys went to the Big Tent on Wimbledon Common, to see A.L. Kennedy, who presented her first children’s book, Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Utmost Entirely Planned Adventure. The trip was a great success and LP1 have already dived head first into the book.
Then on Wednesday, LP2, Prep and Elements boys saw Rob Lloyd Jones, Egyptologist and author of many History books that are already familiar to the boys. Rob is now writing fiction books, and his stories of how he went from reluctant reader to falling in love with History and story books, had the boys and teachers in stitches. Elements boys even gave Rob a standing ovation at the end of the presentation!
