Year 5 and 6

Today we welcomed a children’s author into school. Mrs. P read her book to which was titled Jessie and JoJo. The book revolved around concerns and worries and how we can combat these.


Mrs. P also took time to talk about her career and answer questions the children asked. These included her favourite children’s books and authors and about her work caring for animals in Australia.


I found it interesting that it took so long for her to draw the pictures. I thought that would be a quick bit.”


”There were some really cute animals that live in Australia. I liked the quokka. I hope she writes a book with it in.”


”Her favourite illustrator was Quentin Blake. He draws the pictures for Roald Dahl books.”


This was a great visit with a powerful message. Thank you Mrs. P.
