For the fourth year running we will be giving two year 5/6 classes from schools in the Chipping Norton Schools Partnership the opportunity to work with a children’s author and write their own short stories. This year we are thrilled to have Jasmine Richards, the author of The Book of Wonders, Keeper of Myths and Secrets of Valhalla. Jasmine will be working with Hook Norton Primary School and Hillside Park School, looking at the themes of fantasy, myths and adventure.

The children’s stories will then be published and given to the children, following their own book launch. Participating children have been thrilled to see their own stories and illustrations published in a ‘proper book’ and even the most reluctant writers have enthusiastically shared their stories with friends and family.

This project has been generously funded for the last three years by The Book Trade Charity.
