News and Events at Sheffield Springs Academy

Tommy Donbavand, author of the popular children’s series ‘Scream Street’, comes to our Academy!

Event date: 14/01/2014 Export event

Tommy Donbavand made our students scream – with laughter - when he visited the Academy on Tuesday 14th January.  During his character creations workshops he worked with all our year 7 students, showing them how to create and give life to a fictional character.  They then had the chance to create their own character and find ways that each character within the working group could interact together. 

After the workshops, all year 7 students were gathered together for a question and answer session in the main hall.  This session started out with Tommy talking about how he became a writer and entertained the students with stories of his childhood and the antics he got up to during this period of his life.  Some, like the time he set fire to their tent on a family camping holiday, had to be preceded with the words “Don’t try this at home…”

Speaking to the students after the event, they really enjoyed the sessions with Tommy and, of course, half now aspire to be writers.

Thank you Tommy for an excellent visit!
