Visit by Author Saci Lloyd - January 8th

Students on both Borrington and Hillgrove sites enjoyed a visit from acclaimed author of ‘The Carbon Diaries’ Saci Lloyd.

Saci has an interest in science and politics which provide the themes for her books and she began with a lively talk to the whole of Year 8 in which she asked them to think about carbon emissions, the growth of the world’s population and Donald Trump, although when asked her opinion Saci remained resolutely impartial!

Saci talked about how great books need a great story and great characters using ‘The Hunger Games’ as an example. She told the students the story of how her main characters in the novel ‘Momentum’ meet, and her story telling captivated the whole hall. At break a number of students came to the library asking for copies of the book as well as to talk to Saci about some of the ideas she had raised

Two workshops followed in which Saci explored these ideas further and asked the students to respond to a number of stimuli including the rise of robots, war as entertainment and the idea of a quest story with a particular focus on the sub-text of storylines and characters.

Saci’s visit concluded in a lively session with Year 9 who engaged in an equally lively and positive way, many of the students offered opinions on her ideas and asked a range of questions about science and writing.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
