Kamilla wrote to Kate and was thrilled to receive an an invitation to meet Kate at her studio yesterday.

How exciting!

Kamilla and her sister, Alicia had the opportunity to look at some of the drawings that Kate was working on, had their books signed and they even got to meet Olive, the dog!

Lynne Chapman – a success!

DSCN0720Today author and illustrator, Lynne Chapman braved the snow and visited KS1.

Lynne spent the morning with year 2 and then the afternoon with year 1. She told stories, sang songs accompanied by her maracas, ran a drawing workshop and did a little drawing herself.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the DSCN0729day which ended with book selling and signing.

If you forgot you forgot you your money today or have decided that you would like a book, it is not too late. There are still a few copies of Bears on the Stairs (£5.40), Jungle Grumble (£6.30) and one copy of Last Ark (£7.20). I will have these books until the beginning of next week. If you would like to buy one please see Miss Whiteley.
