Book Day
11th February 2016

We all enjoyed a fantastic Book Day with Jonny Duddle, Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve.

Our Pre-Prep pirates heard tales of the high seas from Jonny Duddle. Captain Hummingbird and Quartermaster Smith ran a tight ship and everyone had lots of fun singing, drawing, writing and reading.

Yardley Court and Derwent Lodge heard all about the storymaking and illustration behind The Pugs of The Frozen North from Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. An Illustrator Workshop (Sharks in the Bath!), Fantasy Creatures, Jules Verne balloons and Steampunk Inventions sparked imaginations and stretched creative skills.

Wonderful costumes made the day complete. Thank you authors, illustrators and costumiers!
