We invited Stuart Trotter into our school during our Read, Draw and Explore week. During the week he engaged our children and encouraged them to be both readers and writers. The pupils listened to his fascinating back ground on how he became an author and illustrator. He inspired pupils from Y1 to Y6 to write and illustrate their own books.

Thank you for helping us officially ‘open’ our new Infant library. The boys loved working with a ‘real’ author and were enthused by making picture books with you. The youngest boys were thrilled to hear your stories and we can’t wait to work with you again.
