Recently, the Learning Hub welcomed former student and published author Lee Willmore back to Wood Green Academy. Lee spoke to Year 9 students about his first novel, A British War Dance, and how his life had influenced the story. If you look closely, he even mentions Wood Green!
Year 9 really enjoyed the opportunity to talk to Lee and see how love can still grow, despite the difficult circumstances that surrounded the Second World War. They found this linked to the poetry they had been reading in English surrounding power and conflict.
This was a brilliant day and we look forward to welcoming Lee and other writers in again soon!
