Star Author

This week we've been particularly excited as we've had the chance to welcome two star authors - Chrissie Sains and Thomas Leeds!

Chrissie Sains spoke to the year 3 and 4 children on Monday about how to transport the reader to an imaginary setting. She asked the children to think about a key and decide what it could open. It really inspired the children to be creative and think outside of the box!

On Tuesday our older children got the chance to be part of a book launch when they were visited by Thomas Leeds. Thomas' book Jayben and the Golden Torch was inspired by his own extraordinary life. Having lost all of his memories in an accident, Thomas started to rediscover reading and writing after regaining a childhood memory. This inspired Thomas to write his first book based on the question... can one boy with no memories save the world?

Thank you to Dr. Jacqui Johnson from the Jacqson Diego Story Emporium for organising both events and continuing to support the school to ensure our children have these fantastic opportunities! The children were praised by our special guests for their imagination and creativity during their visits.
