Clementine Beauvais inspires pupils at the Prep
22 Sep 2014
Clementine Beauvais visited the Prep on Wednesday to talk to Year 3 about her new book, The Royal Babysitters.
Clementine spoke about her motivations to become an author as well as the challenges she faces in writing children’s books. She encouraged the children to read widely and to persevere with their own writing, giving them an insight into the real-life inspiration for her very funny characters. The session was entertaining and highly interactive, with the children thinking about people in their lives and how they could be turned into book characters. Look out parents and siblings!
During the workshop part of Clementine’s visit, the children were remarkably engaged and inventive in creating their own villains under Clementine’s expert guidance.
