Emily Diamand Author Event

This afternoon 17 children from Year 5 attended a special author event at Allerton High School. The session had been organised by a group of pupils from Allerton High in conjunction with the Ilkley Literature Festival.

Emily, first talked to the children about how she became a author and about writing. The children then embarked upon a creative writing workshop, developing characters and writing their own stories which at the end of the session were produced into books!
