We were very excited to have a visit from Piers Torday, the author of 'The Last Wild' trilogy, which Years 5 and 6 have been reading.
The children listened to a talk by Piers and got to ask burning questions that they had. This was then followed by an oppurtunity for the children to buy copies of his books and have them signed by the author himself.
Piers has even gone on to email to say how impressed he was by our children since his visit:-
"I was blown away not just by the welcome from staff and pupils but the incredible amount of creative and inspiring classroom work on display. Truly one of the most impressive Power of Reading responses I have seen! I was also really touched by the children's many smart and thoughtful questions."
Hopefully this has gone on to inspire our children's writing and many possible authors in the making!
