Year 6 were EXTREMELY lucky to have a special guest in the classroom last week. Author Sophie Anderson kindly joined us via Skype to engage with the class as we are currently reading her book: The House with Chicken Legs. The children had prepared some brilliant questions to ask and Sophie kindly answered all of them with really honest answers. The children listened intently throughout and were so excited when she read us a few pages from the book!
We were even lucky enough to be told some top secret details about her new book which is due to be released in Autumn this year! Sophie also discussed her inspiration for The House with Chicken Legs, including ideas that stem from her family and life. The children were shocked to hear quite how much time Sophie spent editing her book. The time spent editing and the fact that Sophie had previously written other books, before her first book was published, demonstrated great messages about the importance of perseverance and resilience. Thank you for inspiring Year 6, Sophie; the children were absolutely buzzing afterwards!
