Author visit - Mimi Thebo

It was a pleasure to have children's author Mimi Thebo visiting us last week to tell us about her latest book, Dreaming the Bear, and what it's like to be a writer. 

Born in Kansas City, USA, Mimi had plenty of interesting tales to tell - one story our students particularly enjoyed was hearing how she almost stepped on a grizzly bear's head while searching for strawberries! 

Mimi spent the morning with two groups of Year 7s, discussing Dreaming the Bear and running a writing workshop for the students where they had to envision life as an animal. 

The whole of Year 8 then had the opportunity to hear from Mimi in a special assembly, and even handle a real-life bear claw!

A big thank you to Mimi for such a fun and inspiring morning!
