Exclusive preview with special message from children's author Julian Sedgewick to celebrate World Book Day!

Ely College will celebrate World Book Day across two weeks this year so that all Year 7 & Year 8 students can take part in activities during their LIVE library lessons. Covid, remote learning and a busy week ahead of phrased returns into school isn't going to stop us from celebrating World Book Dy 2021 in style!

During previous years, we have been very lucky to welcome local author, Julian Sedgwick, into school to talk to Year 7 students about his work as a successful author. Students have found his talks inspirational and there is always such a buzz amongst them after his talk. The juggling knife show tends to cause a stir!

We are very proud and grateful for our continued links with Julian and the support he offers Ely College. This year, despite the difficult circumstances, he continues to inspire our students, although this is in a slightly different format. Julian has recorded a special message for our students and an introduction to his new book Tsunami Girl, which will be available in March.

We are very lucky to have this exclusive preview!

When we are back in school, all Year 7 students will have the opportunity for a live chat with Julian during their library lesson.

Julian’s new book; Tsunami Girl will be available from Toppings along with other books shops. Toppings is running an order and collect service and can arrange for the book to be signed by Julian. To contact Toppings; phone 01353 645005 or email ely@toppings.co.uk
