The Young Houdini

On 29th February, as part of our Book Week programme, we were delighted to welcome Simon Nicholson, author of the Young Houdini books and BAFTA nominated script writer for TV shows including Bob the Builder, Tracy Beaker and Thomas the Tank Engine. Working with Reception through to Form 6, Simon engaged the children in an enthralling workshop where they had to come up with the characters of a new adventure book. There was no doubting the children’s imagination as at one point the book had a talking string of sausages, a magical pen and scenery that resembled Rivendell!
