Patron of Reading visit

26th March 2018
Our Patron of Reading, Jennifer Killick, spent the day in school today. After a whole school assembly in which she talked about what it takes to become an author, Jennifer then worked with all of the classes throughout the day on different areas of creative writing.
Parents were invited to meet Jennifer during the afternoon and she provided lots of information on encouraging a love of reading, as well as recommending suitable titles for different age groups.
At the end of the day, Jennifer signed copies of her book - Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink.
Jennifer kindly donated a signed copy of her book for the library and kindly brought signed copies of books from Vashti Hardy and James Nicol as well. 
Watch out for more visits to be organised later on this year.
