February 8th, 2016 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Exciting news!!!

We will be having 2 visiting authors coming into school during World Book Week!

Harriet Goodwin will be visiting Years 4 – 6 and Steve Weatherill will be spending time with Years 1 -3.

Both authors have written some amazing and very popular books, some of which have won awards!

Take a look at the authors’ websites to find out a little bit more about them before they visit. I know they would love you to know about their books and be able to ask them questions about what they do and even perhaps, ask them how you could become a better story writer!!

    I’m was extremely excited to have Harriet Goodwin but the Mrs Smith came to us and gave us some bad news.

    • Mrs Smith

      I know Chloe, that’s such a shame! But, you can still enjoy her books by yourself – they’re amazing! I liked the Hex Factor the best! You will have a great time at Kingswood though I know.

    The Nursery children this morning loved their session with the author. Jenson really liked being the baby goose.

  • Mrs Wall

    I know year 6 really enjoyed the visit from Harriet and so many were desperate to read her books that Mrs Smith has had to create a sign in and out system! I can’t wait to hear what they all think. I know Sophie has already read a couple and has a super book review on display in the library. Why not go and have a look if you are thinking of trying out one of Harrie’s books?
