Tettenhall College played host to three authors over the
Autumn term. The first visit was from CBBC actor and
author of the Rory Branagan series Andrew Clover. He
entertained the pupils from Y2 up to Y6 with his show
‘The Seven Secrets of Storytelling’.
Harriet Goodwin, author of The Boy Who Fell Down Exit
43 and The Extraordinary Legacy of Elvira Phoenix, talked
to children in Y3 to Y7 about the process of writing and
where to find inspiration. Finally, Steve Smallman, who
has been illustrating and writing children’s books for
almost 30 years entertained children in Reception up to
Y3 with some impromptu drawing, sharing ideas with the
youngsters on ways to inspire creativity.
