Authors to visit the Academy

On Tuesday 4th April we have famed author, Phil Earle, who is originally from Hull, coming in to deliver sessions for our ‘Reading Army’ pupils and teachers. His sessions are interactive and designed to develop pupils’ comprehension and reading skills. Many of our boys are reading his latest book “Mind the Gap” and have also read” Heroic” as a class read.

We are also pleased to invite Mike Revel, author of “Stormwalker” to talk to year 7W1 and 7W2 pupils on Wednesday 5th April; and Christine Hamill author of “The Best Medicine”, who will talk to 7W3 and 7W4 on Wednesday 26th April.

Both of their books have been nominated for the 2017 James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Award, which some of our pupils are taking part in. After reading and reviewing the five nominated books, pupils will attend the voting day and awards ceremony on Thursday 27th April.
