Today, Year 6 children visited Ilkley and attended a special session with children’s author, Emma Carroll. Emma won the Leeds Book Awards 2018 and has written several books. She talked to the children about being a writer, how she got the ideas for her stories and answered lots of questions. After the session many of the children met Emma and had their books that they had bought signed.

After lunch (at Riverside Gardens) Year 6 tested their map reading skills and participated in the Literature Festival’s book trail. They walked around Ilkley looking for clues in shop window displays and hunted for Mr Men characters (this year’s theme). The object to find all the hidden Mr Men and to complete the trail.
Soggy but happy!
