This afternoon the Young Editors continued to read the manuscript and also produce some illustrations that they thought would be good to include.
Members of the Young Editors Club have been busy reading and editing an unpublished manuscript for publishers, Barrington Stoke. The book that they are editing has been written by Steve Cole and is called Tin Boy.
Reading the manuscript and making their amendments
Today we celebrated World Book Day in school.
Thank you to everyone that bought in a book from home to share with a friend, a classmate or teacher. I hope you enjoyed sharing stories with one another.
The quizzes went well with children in KS1 and KS2 taking part (in separate quizzes), who knew what amazing knowledge of books the children have and competitiveness too!
Miss Whiteley shared her favourite stories from when she was little, Little Anna and the Tall Uncle and Tikki Tikki Tembo with classes that came to the Library. The children particularly enjoyed the second story probably because they like trying to say Tikki Tikki Tembo’s full name which was Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo. Now that is a long name!
