During Book Week in the Junior School we were lucky enough to welcome Julia Donaldson, the well known author of The Gruffalo, to the Lower Primary. She spoke to the Primary 3 children in an entertaining manner, showing how she started out busking in the streets singing songs which led her to writing and performing songs for the BBC. Her book, A Squash and a Squeeze, actually started out as a song! After singing songs and dressing up as some of her well known characters, Julia showed the children the wonderful envelopes she receives in the post from Axel Sheffler, the illustrator of many of her books. All the children and staff in Primary 3 are very grateful to Julia for giving up her time and speaking in such and entertaining and inspiring way.
The week came to an end with our biannual Book Fair. As always the colourful book stands with a wonderful range of books on sale ensured that the day was another success.
