Banji Alexander, an author who has performed on BGT visited our school to share his book, ‘Lockdown Looms’. Banji taught us all about where he gets his inspiration for characters and said a lot of them are based on children that he himself taught when he was a primary school teacher. He also plays around with real life people such as Boris Johnson; Morris Bonson! Banji Alexander told us that he loves to read and that’s what has helped him to become a brilliant writer, his favourite book growing up was ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl. Banji is in the process of publishing his next book ‘New King’. He was inspiring and very pleased to meet the next generation of writers.
