Ilkley Literature Festival

Last week we were lucky enough to visit Ilkley Literature Festival. We had a fantastic time meeting the author of one of our favourites in 6LM ‘Letters from the Lighthouse.’ She was talking to us all about her new book ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ and her journey to becoming an Author.

Her new book is based on Ancient Egypt and she brought it to life by having one of the children mummified! Amelia did a fantastic job as being her mummy and thankfully we got her back to school in one piece.

After the author visit we had our book trail. Despite the wet weather, we had the most amazing time following the maps to find the clues in the shop windows. James was an expert map reader and was speedy when finding the Mr Men characters in the windows. Well done, James.

We are always so lucky when Mr Sherbourne comes on trips with us, especially because he takes the most amazing photographs. Thank you.

Thank you to Miss Whiteley for organising this fabulous trip.
