Students meet author Julie Wassmer

On Wednesday 27th June, Mrs Standing's Year 8 English students were lucky enough to spend their lesson with local author and scriptwriter, Julie Wassmer. 

During the session, Julie inspired the students by talking about her interesting journey as a writer and shared the opening of her first book.  She then tested their knowledge on the pages she’d read – they passed! 

Having previously been a script writing for nearly twenty year for BBC Drama, Eastenders, Julie brought in the the programme's ‘bible’ and a script for students to look at, prompting more questions about Julie’s career and life as a writer.  

Thanks again to Julie for engaging and inspiring some of Folkestone Academy’s budding writers and actors.
