Spangles McNasty at Northwood College!
On Monday 9 October, we were very fortunate to welcome author Steve Webb to Northwood College. Steve is the author of the popular ‘Spangles McNasty’ series of books.
He ran two author event sessions: Years 5 and 6 in the morning and Years 3 and 4 in the afternoon. During these sessions, he spoke about how he creates the characters in his books, where he gets his ideas for story lines and how much fun it is writing about villains! He involved all the girls by asking them to sing some silly songs from the books. He then talked about the next titles he is working on and how he became ‘hooked’ on reading; as a boy he preferred eating jam to reading books!
He also visited Year 4 in their classrooms and ran two creative writing sessions, inspiring this year group to come up with ideas for new villainous characters!
At the end of each author event, the girls were able to buy one of his books and have it signed by Steve! An exciting day for junior school girls.
