Excitement is building for the beginning of our World Book Day celebrations! Tomorrow, the author Tanya Landman will be visiting and delivering talks to all of the children in the school around her life and career. She is the acclaimed author of the ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ books, as well as the ‘Murder’ series. On Thursday, children will be coming to school dressed as their favourite literary character. The whole school will attend a special World Book Day assembly, when the much anticipated winners of the 500 words competition will be announced and read out. They will also take part in a range of activities rooted in the school’s love of fiction. The author and illustrator Simon James will be visiting school on Friday. He has written and illustrated popular picture books, such as ‘Baby Brains’ and ‘The Boy from Mars’ and will be sharing his tips and experiences with the children.
