Keyworth Primary
& Nursery School


Eagles class were inspired by our visiting author, Barbara Mitchell-Hill.

From class teacher to author of over thirty years, Barbara visited KPNS to share her knowledge of story writing. She answered all our questions and introduced her latest novel- Secret Suffragette- telling us the year long process she goes through in order to get her ideas down. She explained how she redrafts over and over until she is satisfied with the final text- which is exactly what Year 6 have to do too. Hearing about her perseverance was enlightening, as she told us that some of her hard work is never published and she has had to deal with  the disappointment that comes with her job. This has inspired us to be the best authors we can in Eagle's class.
