Wessex Literary Festival

Thornden pupils have participated in the Wessex Schools Literary Festival.  On Monday a group of Year 8s enjoyed a presentation by Chris Bradford, author of the Young Samurai series of books.  He enthralled them by talking about his books, Japanese culture and demonstrating his martial arts skills.

On Wednesday, a team of Year 7s competed in the inaugural Waterstone’s Wessex Literary Quiz held at Hounsdown School.  They were up against 8 other teams from various schools and we are delighted to say that our team won.  Beth Johnson, Monika Rhys-Jones, George Spence and James Veal were presented with the Waterstone’s cup.
