Year 5 went to the Interactive Learning Centre at Baines School on Monday to take part in a workshop led by a published author, Heather Butler.
In the past, Heather has written a selection of books for teachers but in recent years she has branched out into writing children’s stories. As well as a book called ‘Us Minus Mum’, Heather recently had another book published called ‘The Milkshake Detectives’ – a story full of intrigue and lots of milkshake drinking. It was really interesting to hear about the process Heather goes through to form her initial ideas into a finished story.
Lots of the children bought a copy of ‘The Milkshake Detectives’ and Heather kindly signed the copies and wrote a personal message to each child.
Thanks go to Baines School for organising this event.
