Ali Sparkes, whose prizewinning books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide, visited Hill House and spoke to over 350 pupils about her exciting adventure stories for girls and boys. Everyone in the audience received a free copy of one of her books, and had a great time!
In the morning 170 Hill House pupils in Years 5, 6 and 7 heard Ali talk about her life, her books, and her writing process. Ali then helped them to create some rather good stories (involving biscuits). In the afternoon Ali enthralled 180 Year 5 pupils and staff from five local junior schools: St Oswald’s Academy, Finningley; Armthorpe Southfield Primary School; Tickhill St Mary’s Primary School; Bessacarr Primary School, and Belton All Saints Primary School.
