Year 6 listened to and joined in with an interactive talk with Thomas Taylor at the Literature Festival. He spoke about the inspiration for his books, ways in which he got his ideas on to paper, the editing process and lots more. The children were able to think of and ask questions and were inspired by this author!
Year 2 were fortunate to get tickets to see Michael Rosen, our favourite poet! He read new stories and performed many silly poems including his famous “Chocolate Cake” one! There was lots of laughter and we enjoyed the experience. Thank you to our parent helpers and staff who made the trip possible. We’re excited our new poetry book has a CD so we can hear him perform his poems with his brilliant voice and expression.
Year 4 had an amazing time at this year’s Literature Festival, meeting Tom the Story Teller, enjoying a picnic lunch in the warm autumn sun and being highly captivated by Pamela Butchart, author of the highly entertaining ‘There’s a Beast in the Basement’.
Year 5 had the wonderfully entertaining Helen Rutter (author of The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh) all to themselves to delve into the world of writing stories. They came up with some amazing ideas and I know many have already been inspired to start their own tales.
