Primary 4K and P4P went on a trip to Glasgow to take part in The Biggest Book Show on Earth, celebrating World Book Day. The class was very excited, especially as we went on a coach!
At the event, we heard five authors talk about their books and what inspires them. They were: Laura Dockrill, Steve Cole, Emily Gravett, Jill Murphy and Julia Donaldson. They also give us advice on how to be great writer. Emily Gravett asked us to help her write a story about a zombie and we contributed to a song by Julia Donaldson.
The girls and boys who brought a book by Julia Donaldson or Jill Murphy were lucky enough to get it signed by the author! They even wrote the children’s names in the inside cover.
Thank you to all the parent helpers who came with us and to the Parent Council for providing the coach.
