Boclair Academy pupil Lisa Chestnutt of class 2B, won the Scottish Children’s Book Award Review Competition for her review of The Wall by author William Sutcliffe on Wednesday, March 4.
As a prize she won the opportunity for the author of ‘The Wall’, William Sutcliffe, to visit Boclair Academy and talk about his book. He came to the school library on Thursday, May 28 where a group of pupils were gathered to listen to him.
The visit was a great success with lots of information on writing techniques and the background research necessary to put together a book.
The pupils, most of whom had read the book, enjoyed the interactive style of the session and had plenty of questions for the author.
