The Grammar School at Leeds invited children in Years 5 & 6 to join them in attending an event with author, illustrator and poet, Chris White. They thoroughly enjoyed the session with Chris which was highly interactive and loved creating their own animals.
Dressed in Pyjamas and onesies children celebrated World Book Day both in school or at home. Stories were shared, quizzes were played while egg boxes and potatoes were transformed into well-loved book characters along with many other activities.
Remember WBD £1 vouchers can be redeemed until 28th March.
Today, children in Years 4, 5 and 6 were thrilled to receive a visit from local author, Tom Palmer.
The children attended a session with Tom where he spoke about being a writer, about some of his books (he’s well known for his football and historically set books) before they asked him lots of questions as well as quizzing him about his other passion Leeds United.
A small group of children in Year 4 were also invited to participate in a writing workshop with Tom from initial planning to developing characters and plot ideas before editing the beginnings of a very promising action packed Roman inspired story.
This year World Book Day will be slightly different but we will still be celebrating all things books.
