On Tuesday 22nd March, KS1 children were able to take part in a virtual author visit held by Wiltshire Council. This is part of their scheme called 'The Wiltshire Year of Reading'. We are incredibly lucky to be a part of this fantastic scheme which promotes a love of reading for all children.
During this session, the children were virtually visited by Mini Grey. She is a well known author who has written iconic books such as 'Traction Man' and 'The Egg Drop'. Mini Grey talked to us about the different books she has written and her favourite characters. She then answered some questions from the children watching (lots of different schools participated in the event). The children were very excited when their question got answered and Mini Grey explained how her ideas became a story. The children also got to participate with a draw a long. They were able to create a mouse using instructions from Mini Grey. It was a brilliant session and the children had lots of fun!
