Next open morning

11 May 2019

10:30 - 12:00

Twin schools combining the best features of single-sex and co-education for children aged two and a half to thirteen

Form 6 inspired by visit from children's author and illustrator

6B and 6G have have been lucky enough to have the author Simon Murray visit our school.  He is an author and illustrator of some fabulous books .  He spoke about his work in an assembly for children from Reception to Form 6 and then set us some tasks to do throughout the morning.  He then visited the classes separately from Form 8 to Form 6 and did a session on illustrating the main character from Icky Doo Dah.  
The children have made some fabulous illustrations which they will be able to bring home later this week.  There will be some photographs added to the school website and we will be uploading the children's art to Simon's gallery on his website.  The morning has been very inspiring and the character will be forming the basis of our English lessons this week.
