Autumn Author Visits

Catherine RaynerThis autumn we have been fortunate enough to invite two authors to the Junior School. The P2 Year Group welcomed Catherine Rayner, the author and illustrator of books such as Augustus and His Smile and Sylvia and Bird. She entertained the children as she read her stories in a way that brought them to life, and they were enthralled as they watched Catherine illustrate the characters from her books in front of their eyes.

Author Peter J Murray returned to Watson's this term. His novels include The Mokee Joe series and the Bonebreaker series. He really entertains his audience with stories from his background, and reading selections from his novels. He tantalised P6, with his explanations of how the characters in his stories are developed and where he finds his inspiration. He had children acting out scenes from his stories, which really does help to ensure they further develop their love of reading.
