Book Week - Ali Sparkes

On Monday 9th February 2016, Year 5 and 6 walked over to Bedenham Primary School to meet the author Ali Sparkes.  We had an hour’s assembly with her where she inspired us to become authors.  She told us of the troubles she faced to get her books published but she never gave up!  We realised that she had shown perseverance, determination and had to believe in herself, and her writing, in order to get published.  She was very inspiring.  After the assembly, we got to spend another hour with her in a workshop about how to improve our setting descriptions and include lots of detail in our paragraphs.  This was great fun!  Those of us that bought money to school to buy Ali’s books were lucky enough to have them signed too!  We had a great time at Bedenham Primary School and loved meeting Ali Sparkes.
