On Monday 28th June, the author Alan Durant came to school as a belated World Book Day visit. The children were really excited to meet him and he visited every class and shared stories and poems that he had written.

It was the first time Alan had been able to visit a school in over a year and so he was also really excited to work with the children. The children were able to ask him questions about how he came up with ideas for stories, characters and the writing process.

As part of ‘Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week’ the children and staff were asked to dress in a way that expressed something about themselves. It could have been in their favourite colour, in a hobby or sports kit or in anything that expressed a part of their life. Can you work out what each picture expresses?
