Adrian Collman, author of I Was A Brussel Sprout, visited Holy Cross School, Uckfield.
Pupils found out how the humble, and sometimes highly unpopular,Brussels sprout can be an inspiration for creative writing.
Mr Collman helped bring out the children’s creativity with exciting workshops.
Literacy subject leader ,Carole Robertson, said: “The children were totally mesmerised. My key stage one class were so excited and created some amazing stories about animals. Comments from pupils, such as ‘wow, this is awesome’ could be heard across the school.”
