On Wednesday, children in years 3, 4 and 5 were treated to an afternoon with author and illustrator, Kate Pankhurst in partnership with the Ilkley Literature Festival.
Kate spoke about her latest series of books Great Women focusing on Emmerline Pankhurst (yes, she is a distant relative!), Maria Sibylla Merian (beware bird eating spiders are mentioned) and Junko Tabei (mountaineer extraordinaire).
The children joined in in a draw along with Kate drawing their very own Junko Tabei’s conquering Everest. The children had a great afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed Kate’s visit.
The children’s programme at Ilkley Literature Festival takes place this weekend,
