In years 3-6, we were really lucky to have a visit from author: Vashti Hardy. Vashti visited us to talk about her new books, 'Firesong', 'Harley Hitch and the Iron Forest' and 'Harley Hitch and the Missing Moon'. The children had a fantastic opportunity to listen to Vashti describe how she comes up with ideas for her books including fantasy lands and obstacles faced by the characters. She spoke about how she has been inspired by real life explorers when creating her characters and the children were keen to share their knowledge of Amelia Earhart and Ernest Shackleton. The children were very enthusiastic and really enjoyed the opportunity to ask Vashti about what it was like to be an author. We were also lucky enough to be gifted 6 of Vashti's book for our school library from Steyning Book Shop.
