The author of ‘Electrigirl’, Jo Cotterill, came to talk to years 4, 5 and 6 on Thursday, delivering an energetic and inspiring talk to an enthusiastic audience. It involved readings from her book, dramatic re-enactment, and even a thoroughly entertaining science ‘lesson’ about electricity, all involving lots of audience participation!

The children were bursting with excellent questions for her, and hopefully some are inspired to further develop their own writing. Jo’s books are available for sale at Jaffe and Neale, and other good bookshops.
