Since returning to school in September, we have worked hard across school to reignite our love of reading. Each class has had the opportunity to meet an author this half term and take part in a workshop based around their new book.
Our children in Year 2, 3 and 4 enjoyed time with a the famous author Nick Sharratt who writes books like Park in the shark. The children enjoyed the author reading to them and they even had ago at drawing some of the characters.
Our UKS2 children first had a virtual author visit from Jacquline Wilson. She talked about her new book, The Primrose Railway Children, and we met her new illustrator. To finish, we had a go at drawing her new characters. The following week, they had a fantastic virtual visit from Jeff Kinney. He told us all about the next chapter in the Diary of a Wimpy kid saga – Big Shot.
