VISITORS TO OUR CLASS
Monday 18th March 2019
Today we were given the privilege of meeting Mr Philip Walker who is both a comedian and an author. Philip came to our school to read to use his new book - The Snots! It was so funny and inspired us to use our imaginations more freely when writing our own narratives. We also were given the opportunity to ask Philip questions about his life in a gathering on 'The Throne of Words' chair! The answers given were also very inspiring and taught us a lot about his life!
