Book Week 2020

Book Week 2020 kicked off in style on Monday 20th January with a special visit from author-illustrator Paul Geraghty. Paul entertained pupils with tales of his early years in Africa and the inspiration behind his books. He was also on hand to sign copies of his books in the class library. Thank you Paul for visiting us and we hope to see you again in the future!

Wicked: Young Writers Awards

Seventy-three Elmwood pupils from all year groups attended the Young Writers Awards at the Apollo Victoria Theatre on Friday 17th December. Cressida Cowell, author of the best-selling ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ and ‘The Wizards of Once’, gave an inspirational talk and imparted lots of writing advice. A cast member of ‘Wicked’ then performed a song from the show before our pupils picked up their own signed copy of one of Cressida’s books.
