Writer Bali Rai Visit

Visit by Writer Bali Rai Monday 25th September 2017

Following a very successful visit in May of this year, Bali Rai returned to King Charles I to talk to Year 7, 8 and 10, including some workshops with selected students.

Bali began the day by talking to two Year 10 groups about the importance of reading and the impact that it can have on their future. He gave the students plenty to think about in terms of how much they are prepared to read in order to improve their wider knowledge of subjects studied at school, as well as reading for pleasure, which helps to develop creative thinking and problem solving skills.

He also talked about his own reasons for becoming an author and how growing up in multi-cultural Leicester has influenced his writing.

It was lovely to see a number of students engaging in his talk by answering questions and talking about their own reading habits and ambitions for the future.

Year 7 enjoyed a lively talk in which Bali focused on how important it is for them to ‘exercise their brains’ by reading and how they will only improve at reading by reading ‘more words’. He suggested those lacking in confidence could read aloud to a pet!

The Year 8 workshop focused on the writing process, in particular how to generate ideas. The students planned and wrote the beginning of a story that they shared with the rest of the group, receiving some very helpful writer’s tips from Bali.
