We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Skyswood now have an author in residence. Local author, Dawn Finch, has kindly offered to come in each Wednesday to support the school in raising our standards even further in Writing. Mrs Finch, whose first novel, Brotherhood of Shades, has been a tremendous success, is working closely with many of our children and inspiring them in both reading and writing. She has an amazing knowledge of children’s literature and we will no doubt benefit immensely from Dawn’s input. Mrs Finch will also be working closely alongside Mr Bridle on our school poetry book project. We hope to launch a Skyswood book of Poetry (based on the theme of Monsters and Superheroes) in the summer term.
