Ally visited the school last week to tell us about her book Black Powder. It was a story of a boy called Tom on a mission to save his father from being hung and he finds himself mixed up in the Gunpowder Plot. She talked about her past and how she was inspired to write her book. We did a lesson on what makes a good spy and we had lots of interesting ideas. Ally brought in her printer’s copy of the almost finished book as they are printed as two and then cut in half.
I thought it was mind blowing meeting Ally and enjoyed it when she was talking about her inspiration for Black Powder. I found all the historical facts really interesting especially all the gory moments.
