School pupils met the author of a series of science fiction books earlier this month.

Year 5 pupils at Bourne Abbey Primary Academy were treated to a visit from Ben Scott, who writes as Max Chase, the author of the Star Fighter series.

The event was organised by the Rotary Club and involved the children learning all about how Ben became an author and some of the exciting stories from the series.

They fought off meteorites, met the alien creatures and were transported into the books through drama.

Headteacher Cherry Edwards said: “We were delighted to welcome Benjamin to Bourne Abbey to inspire writers of the future.

“A huge thanks go to the Rotary Club for organising this for us.”
