Pupils at Terra Nova were agog with excitement to meet author of the Jamie Johnson books and inspiration behind the TV series – Dan Freedman.
Dan talked to the children about his great love of football, about his career as a football journalist and about his writing. In his own words, Dan Freedman explains the concept behind the Jamie Johnson books: ‘The idea behind the books was a very simple one: I wanted to write the kind of books that I would have loved to have read when I was younger. That meant lots of drama, fast-paced action and, of course lots of football!’
It was a thoroughly inspiring and interesting talk and the children relished the opportunity to address lots of questions to a real life author!
