This week we were lucky enough to have a special visit from author and illustrator Jessica Spanyol. She writes lots of books that we knew such as 'Carlo likes reading' and 'Go bugs Go' as well as the more recent 'Clive' editions. Jessica engaged us all and got us excited with an assembly first where she taught us about herself and how she became a writer and illustrator. Then some children got to join her in her story telling and re-create some of the characters.
Reception and Year 1 were extra lucky as we had workshops with Jessica and began exploring the beginning stages of character creating, a process Jess goes through herself. We all got to create our own story characters. Have a look at all the fun we had - it was such an inspiring day!
