On Wednesday 14th March, Year 5 were lucky enough to be invited to the John Lyon School to meet the author Matt Dickenson......find out all the details here!

Within his talk, Matt talked about his trilogy of books ‘The Everest Files’ and about his experiences of climbing Mount Everest. Photos from the meeting can be seen by CLICKING HERE

Here are some of our thoughts about our trip:

William “I enjoyed listening to Matt Dickenson’s experiences about climbing Mount Everest and listening to his stories about other people”

Laura “I enjoyed listening to him talk about his experiences in other schools. He told us about a boy who asked silly questions such as ‘What is yellow snow?’”

Sylvester “I enjoyed learning about his experiences whilst climbing Mount Everest. We learnt that he couldn’t bring Toffee Crisps (his favourite chocolate) because the air pressure would make them explode – This happened to him previously”
