Our author visits this week have certainly inspired the children. On Monday we welcomed both Layn Marlow and Joseph Coelho. Layn shared her book about an owl and produced an amazing illustration for us to keep. She also showed our younger children how to create their own owl images which were excellent. Joseph worked with KS2 children and shared some of his poems before showing the children how to write poems of their own using good word choices. Both signed copies of their books for the children to take home. The authors were visiting the school as part of the Appledore Book Festival.
On Wednesday we welcomed local author Dr Ed Fox who talked to the children about the process of writing his own books which are predominantly about history. Thanks to him and all our visitors this week, as well as Mrs Gough for organising the experience.
