Students bring Roald Dahl’s tales to life in this year's House Drama Competition
Earlier this month, we had the pleasure of welcoming the author, Anthony Burt to our Junior School. Mr Burt met with our Year 3 and Year 5 pupils and shared some extracts from his new book, 'The Animal Lighthouse'.
It was an exciting opportunity for our girls to meet and speak with the person behind this exciting book. They were immersed in the story, as they discovered more about the characters who had to save their island, by solving the mystery of the missing lighthouse filament bulbs! Our girls were enthused by wearing animal masks, inspired by the book, and finding our about the twists and turns of the plot. Naturally, they had lots of questions to ask the author and were keen for him to sign their books.
Our school regularly hosts authors' visits thanks to its link with Max Minerva's Bookshop. Nothing compares to visiting authors to inspire children to read and write.
We look forward to our next author visit.
