This year has been another busy time for our English department. We have had many virtual author visits with KS3, including Joseph Coelho, Michael Morpurgo and Sarah Hagger-Holt.
Joseph Coelho is a performance poet and author. He spoke about his new book ‘The Girl Who Became a Tree’, a poetic adaptation of the Greek myth of Daphne, who transformed herself into a tree to escape the god Apollo. In this book however Daphne tries to escape the loss of her Father in an enchanted library… He also spoke about his writing inspirations, his aim to join over 200 libraries and gave writing advice to our students on how to become great authors.
