Edinburgh trip

On Monday 22nd August an S4 English class visited Edinburgh for the day. The class enjoyed time at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Dungeons. The pupils involved listened to Patrice Lawrence and Anthony McGowan talk about the process of writing and their latest books. Both authors gave valuable insight into what inspires their characters and the setting of their books as well as reading very entertaining extracts from their novels “Orange Boy” and “Pike”. Lots of laughter and screams followed as the class then ventured below the streets of Edinburgh to hear tales of Burke and Hare and Mary Queen of Scots. It was a fantastic day and everyone is now looking forward to writing their own stories. Thanks to Mrs Early for organising the trip.
