On Tuesday, pupils welcomed a special visitor-Matt Oldfield, co-author of the ultimate Football Heroes and Classic Football Heroes book series. After giving an assembly, Matt delivered a workshop entitled 'Bouncing Back,' in which he used Gareth Bale's early injury problems to address the themes of growth mind-set and resilience. Pupils then produced a piece of creative writing about a time when they bounced back.
Matt also had free time to chat with pupils and sign books. Books are usually priced at £5 each, however, Mr Scott kindly offered a £2 subsidy, bringing the price down to £3!
Pupils appreciated this experience and are enjoying reading their signed books!
