As part of Cheltenham Literature Festival, which has been mostly online this year, Beech Class has enjoyed listening to an array of fabulous authors and illustrators this week. Although we have missed visiting the festival in person, we have certainly benefitted from more author sessions than ever before.
Beech and Birch began the week by watching Rob Biddulph’s session, when he explained how he become a famous illustrator and read his new book. The important message the children took from this was that they can be anything they want to be in life!
On Tuesday, Beech ‘met’ Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara, the Spanish author responsible for the fabulous biographies written for children about outstanding people. Fortunately, we have invested in the complete range of these books for our new library, so the children were able to explore them first-hand afterwards. What a treat!
