Pupils at ‘outstanding’ prep school Belmont Grosvenor were given the chance to get creative when writer and illustrator Teresa Flavin dropped by.
The Leeds-based author spent a day at the Harrogate school working with youngsters from Reception to Year 6.
As well as reading extracts from her popular books for older readers, The Blackhope Enigma and The Crimson Shard, Teresa had fun with the younger children creating a wacky mouse character and building stories around him!
Youngsters in Years 5 and 6 turned their own stories into mini books, using a hand-drawn treasure map, jewels and a pirate hat to spark their imagination!
The day-long workshop was the latest in a series of inspiring events taking place at Belmont Grosvenor School, just three miles from Harrogate. These include another visit from Olympic swimmer James Kirton, who is officially opening the newly refurbished swimming pool later this month.
Former Olympic swimmer James Kirton took the plunge when he officially opened a new £80,000 swimming pool refurbishment at ‘outstanding’ Harrogate prep school Belmont Grosvenor. The Yorkshire-based athlete, who swam for Team GB in the Beijing Olympics, cut the ribbon before joining pupils at the co-educational school for a swimming lesson.
Youngsters with heart conditions across Yorkshire are set to benefit from the fundraising efforts of parents, pupils and staff at a leading independent Harrogate school. Belmont Grosvenor School, an ‘outstanding’ co-educational prep school based at Swarcliffe Hall, Birstwith, chose the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as their charity for 2015.
