Author Week 2018

During Author Week 2018, we were launched into numerous exciting activities.  

Here are just SOME of the exciting things we did;

  • Harriet Goodwin visited and delivered creative writing workshops;
  • Potato Head Challenge day was a huge success with many FANTASTIC designs;
  • The Carousel Book day enabled children to experience a range of different books alongside children from all year groups;
  • Mystery Reader allowed children to listen to a book in an unusual/new surrounding;
  • Reading buddy swaps allowed children to mix with younger/older children;
  • Creative cooking classes were a huge hit and amazing edible treats were produced; 
  • Children dressed up in amazing, creative outfits to celebrate the end of Author Week. 


Alongside these activities, there were many opportunities to get involved with a book and become incredible authors!
