This week we were delighted to welcome the children’s author, John Clewarth to Richmond House School to visit our Year 5 and 6 pupils.

John, who is the author of the much acclaimed young adult novel, Firestorm Rising, hosted a workshop for each year group on story writing and supplied top tips and techniques on how to write a spooky and atmospheric story.

The pupils dressed in wigs and used props to highlight character development and really enjoyed learning about how to build up the thrills and chills in their stories.
