Anthony McGowan at Charlton Park Academy

Anthony McGowan was our guest author for our rescheduled World Book Day.
Classes London Bridge, Notting Hill Gate, Cyprus and Tooting Bec had a great time listening to Anthony talk and read, plus they had a chance to ask questions about his work and life as an author.

Anthony has been shortlisted for the Carnegie medal for his book Rook which, according to our librarian, can stand alone as it is part of a trilogy.  The two other books in the trilogy, Brock and Pike, are also excellent and could be a good choice for a class read.

Listen to Anthony talk about Rook here: www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk
Plus, hear an extract from


Classes London Bridge and Paddington enjoyed an informal talk by Roisin from Greenpeace. Students learnt about conservation issues, how old you have to be to join Greenpeace, corporate responsibilities as well as what we can do to help our planet.
