author Marcus Alexander visits Northwood School
In celebration of World Book Day, author Marcus Alexander met Year 7 and 8 students to give one of the most engaging presentations that our students have ever seen.
Marcus explained that he was encouraged by his parents to follow his dreams, and become a writer. His inspiration for his books had been the adventures that he had had when travelling to many countries. Marcus encouraged the students to experience life and push themselves out of their comfort zones. He said they should choose their role models wisely. Finally, Marcus treated the students to a display of gymnastics, performing some amazing stunts such as somersaults and backflips.
Marcus then took charge of a writing workshop for Year 7, where, using characters from his book “Keeper of The Realms”, students explored descriptive writing in depth.
Students enjoyed his visit and described his talk as, “stunning”.
