Year 1 and 2 really enjoyed listening to the book 'Nibbles' by Emma Yarlett. They then 'met' Emma Yarlett, where she talked about what it was like being an author and illustrator and she also taught the children how to draw the main character. This really brought the book to life for them!
We also enjoyed an interview with David Walliams. The children were gripped to hear about where his ideas came from and that some characters were based on real people! Year 2 also thoroughly enjoyed listening to David Walliams' inspirational assembly and, taking his advice on board, they then enjoyed the opportunity to write their own short stories about anything they wanted, with just one criteria from David - every story needs a good villain!
We had a really fun and enjoyable day exploring books, dressing up as our favourite characters and learning about all the fantastic books out there!
