Virtual Visit from S.F.Said!
We have had a fantastic afternoon listening and talking to S.F Said - author of Varjak Paw and Phoenix. He inspired us all to persevere with our own writing adventures and gave us hints and tips on how to get into writing a new story idea. We have copies of his books on our shelves at school and study Varjak Paw in year 5 and 6!
