Children’s Author, Sam Copeland, Visits Northfield School


Hilarious children’s author, Sam Copeland, dropped into Northfield on Wednesday to entertain a selection of Y7 & Y8 English students, along with some visiting Y5 pupils from Prior’s Mill and Crooksbarn Primary Schools. Students were in stitches as Sam gave a lively presentation that included disgusting facts about the Turkey Vulture, the Hag Fish and the Dung Beetle amongst many others. Everyone listened intently while he read a chapter from his latest book, where the main character, Charlie McGuffin turns into a spider and is chased by a cat.

Sam finished off with a question and answer session, and then signed copies of his books, ‘Charlie Changes into a Chicken’ and ‘Charlie Turns into a T-Rex’. Students and staff commented on what a great time they all had.
