09 Mar Hats off to children’s author
Children’s author Katherine Woodfine visited Sibford School to talk about the latest book in her best-selling series, The Sinclair’s Mysteries.
Centred on Sinclair’s Department Store in the heart of Edwardian London, the books feature the exploits of daring detectives Sophie and Lil.
Katherine completed a hat trick in February when the third book in the series, The Painted Dragon, was published. And when she arrived at Sibford she brought plenty of Sinclair’s-style hats with her for dressing up and encouraged pupils to do some of their own detective work by unravelling coded messages.
Year 7 pupil, Mila said: “I liked the way that Katherine Woodfine made her visit as interactive as possible and that she brought in props to show us what things looked like in 1909.”
