Date: 6th Nov 2014 @ 4:35pm

Hokey Pokey Pig & The Pogs!

This week Year 1 and Year 2 spent the whole morning with an Author called Deborah Elias. She shared her E-book with the chidlren called 'Hokey Pokey Pig & The Pogs.

We all had great fun drawing, colouring, and finding the rhyming words in her story. We hope that by meeting a real author, the children have been inspired and will hopefully write and draw more in the future!

The session ended with a competition where the children had to write a book review saying what they liked about Deborah's book and why.

Congraulations to Grace for winning the Year 1 competition!
