Author Visit for World Book Day
This week saw celebrations for World Book Day in full flow as author Steve Webb came in to talk to children from both KS1 and KS2 about his life and inspirations as an author and illustrator. Steve, author of the Spangles McNasty series (which is also illustrated by friend of the school Chris Mould) certainly left his mark with lots of the children keen to get cracking with some creative writing of their own after the talk. The entertaining presentation involved lots of fun (and some wobbly singing!) as well as a whole host of advice about how to approach the daunting task of writing a story. We had a great time and some children were even lucky enough to get a book signed by Steve afterwards. We continue our World Book (Week) fun with dressing up day on Thursday when there will be lots of reading and activities and then on Friday we are taking part in the Big Leeds Book Swap, which should be a great opportunity for the children to get their teeth into some new reading.
