Writers Class 6CJ, Southwater Junior Academy
Class 6CJ at Southwater Junior Academy wrote a book in lockdown as a way of keeping in touch, and then sold it to raise money for us!
In lockdown, Jessie and her classmates started a chain story as a way of keeping in contact and for a bit of fun. Jessie dropped it round to her friend Noah’s house on her daily exercise and from there it eventually went round the whole class.
When we received all the children’s written work back and read through the story, we thought it would be an amazing idea to turn it into a children’s paperback book. All the children then set to work creating all the illustrations, and their wonderful story went to print.
We decided to sell the children’s book to raise money for YoungMinds as it was such an uncertain time, particularly for children, that we felt that they would be needing the support more than ever.
The children in class 6CJ sold 140 books, raising £492.25 for YoungMinds.
