William Grill-Author and Illustrator- Virtual visit to Yr 5/6
The school was very pleased that William Grill could return to the school(sadly virtually this time)to talk about his latest book and what it is like to write and illustrate your own books. William is a London based illustrator whose main interest lies in narrative illustration and publishing. He draws most of his inspiration from the natural world, and enjoys working in coloured pencils and occasionally printmaking processes like lino and lithography. His first book Shackelton's Journey won the 2015 Kate Greenaway award and has been translated into 14 different languages. The children were really inspired by both his work and how he overcomes challenges he encounters.
World Book Day
Each child in the class entered a competition to design a t shirt by The Devon Library Service. The design was of your favourite book character.

Each child was asked to dress up in their favourite book character and bring in the book as well. The morning started off with a Reading Breakfast where the children had croissants,baguette,butter and jam. We went into Church to have an assembly where Mrs Herbert read the story of "Mary Anning". During the morning KS1 children watched a live link with Claire Rayner and KS2 watched a link on BBC connected with World Book Day. After lunch the teachers read their favourite story to a group of children. KS2 then linked up with a live link with Michael Rosen and Michael Morpurgo.
