The children attended a session with Tom where he spoke about being a writer, about some of his books (he’s well known for his football and historically set books) before they asked him lots of questions as well as quizzing him about his other passion Leeds United. 

A small group of children in Year 4 were also invited to participate in a writing workshop with Tom from initial planning to developing characters and plot ideas before editing the beginnings of a very promising action packed Roman inspired story.
