Children from our Reception, Year 1 & 2 classes were treated to a talk by Nick Butterworth award winning author and illustrator of the QPootle 5 and Percy the Park Keeper Series of books. Nick is a passionate advocate for parents reading with their children even when children are capable of reading of books themselves. He shared stories of his family and his childhood in a way that had the children engrossed and laughing along at the anecdotes. They also loved the drawings he did especially the dragon created from a child’s squiggly line! Children were able to purchase books or bring along their own copy of their favourite Nick Butterworth book for him to sign which proved exceptionally popular. Thank you to Nick for his boundless enthusiasm and Mrs Wood for organising the event on behalf of the school.
