World Book Day Speakers

This week we were lucky enough to be visited by the author and illustrator Alexis Deacon (Beegu, Croc and Bird, I Am Henry Finch and many more). He read us several of his books and talked through his process of writing. Later we were treated to a more intimate Early Year’s session where we learned more about Beegu and how to draw some of Mr Deacon’s characters.

The children were very enthusiastic and asked some fantastic questions.

On Thursday we are looking forward to meeting and learning from poet Valerie Bloom (Hot Like Fire, Let Me Touch The Sky, Surprising Joy).

Please remember to exchange your World Book Day vouchers at participating retailers for either a free book or £1 off any book.
