Jeremy Strong Visit


Year 4 were extremely lucky to be welcomed to Highgate School to meet Jeremy Strong. The author of hilarious books such as 'Doctor Bonkers'. 'My Brother's Famous Bottom' and 'The Hundred-Mile- An-Hour Dog'.

The author told us about himself, what inspires his writing and how he has come to have written over 100 books! The children laughed from start to finish as the witty author gave away all of his tricks of the trade. He needs peace and quiet and refreshments when he works so he locks himself away in a shed in his garden with the company of his cat and his fridge!
He also let us in on the secret that he can only ever write in black ink and on pages with no lines!!

His work was truly put to the test when Jeremy chose Agatha from Sapphire Class to read some of his handwriting. It was impossible as it was so messy. Even Jeremy could not read it. He now does all his work on a computer so that it is legible.
