I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to Mike Johnson and all the students and staff I met at Butterstile Primary for a fantastic visit last week!
It was a pleasure to talk to Years 6, 5, 4 & 3 about writing and books. There are some fantastic readers at Butterstile, and there were many great questions – more than we had time to answer on the day. So if anyone would like to ask any more questions, just leave me a comment at the bottom of this page!
It was then great to spend some time with Year 4, who have been reading Varjak Paw, and producing lots of brilliant work inspired by it. Here's a news report on the Vanishings and a retelling of the beginning of the story, written by Butterstile Year 4s!
It was a pleasure at the end of the day to sign books for everyone who wanted one. I hope everyone is enjoying their books – so I'd like to end by wishing you all HAPPY READING! and HAPPY WRITING!
