Last week, it was fantastic to be able to welcome into school, G B Strong, author of Running Deep.
Two Year 7 English classes were treated to a workshop with Grant who spoke about his book, described as “an exciting adventure set in the near future in a technologically advanced London, caught in a dark, criminal underworld.”
We learnt about unleashing our own creativity and how everything starts from daydreaming! Pupils enjoyed acting out the opening scene from Running Deep, as well as examples of famous people’s daydreams and how they went on to successfully create them.
Grant also provided lots of great writing tips for developing characters and plots and above all, inspired us all to be less passive and more creative!

“I loved how he let us create and act out the stories of other creative people, instead of just telling us.” Sophie
