Authors Visit Junior School Literacy Week
Pupils at Stamford Junior School were visited by three children’s authors during Literacy Week in November. The Parents Association funded the visits from Rose Impey for Key Stage 2 and writing duo Cid and Mo for Key Stage 1.
Rose Impey’s ‘The Flat Man’ will never be seen in quite the same way again by the pupils as she delivered a spellbinding reading from the book. When talking about it afterwards one child even said that they hoped she would never stop writing. Cid and Mo also delivered two assemblies and an inspiring workshop for the KS1 children.
English Co-ordinator, Fiona Sampson, said: “We all had a lot of fun. Staff and children alike thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so many youngsters were left with a renewed inspiration of reading and writing for which we are most grateful.”
