Hexham Book Festival: Writing Borders

14th June 2018

“Writing Borders” KS3 Enrichment Project: As part of Hexham Book Festival, 15 of our KS3 pupils were selected to work with a visiting author and illustrator from Latvia. The children explored the concept of borders (physical, geographical and emotional) before producing their own short stories. Alex (Y7) even had his story performed at the Queen’s Hall, Hexham, where pupils also listened to stories being read in different languages. Our pupils were complimented on the quality of their engagement with this enrichment project. Thanks to Mrs Stutchbury and Mrs Batey for supporting the pupils, and to Hexham Book Festival for sponsoring the week’s events. Well done KS3!
