World Book Day

Congratulations to everyone for their fantastic efforts during World Book Day. The children were treated to a special assembly that was presented by local author, Jeanne Willis and her amazing alien accomplice, Dr Xargle! The response to the Author of the Term competitions was the best we’ve ever had, with over a hundred entries in our competitions (design a model, design a front cover and write a story in the style of Jeanne Willis. Jeanne was blown away by the quality of the entries and delighted to present some signed books to our competition winners: Georgia, Oliver, Naomi, William, Hina, Rory and Eva. Jeanne loved Eva’s book so much that she actually plans to use some of Eva’s ideas and write her own ‘Giraffe Needs a Laugh’ book. Having written over eighty published picture books, who knows… one of our Skyswood pupils may well end up being the inspiration for Jeanne’s next story!
