We are very lucky to be having a visit from a new author Jane Kerr on Thursday 20th April. She has written a fantastic children’s book about local legend, Maharajah the Elephant, who lived just around the corner from the school at Belle Vue Zoological Gardens. The book is aimed at children aged 8-13 and is a very exciting read. Jane will meet all Year 2- Year 6 pupils to talk about becoming an author and to inspire a writing challenge.
Children will then have a chance to purchase her book ‘The Elephant Thief’ for a special price of £5 (usually £6.99 ) and have it signed by the author.
We will be buying a copy for each class to keep.
If you would like your child to have a copy of the book, please give them £5 in an envelope with their name on the front to give to their class teacher on Thursday morning. Or if you would like to buy a copy, parents are warmly invited to come to the hall from 3p.m. where the book will be on sale.
There will be other projects based around the book building up to our summer festival which we look forward to telling you about nearer the time.
