To add to the celebrations during book week we welcomed author and illustrator Andrew Plant to our school. We were delighted to hear the story of how he started his career as a Science student, but he soon realised that he enjoyed drawing animals more than researching them. He soon became a well known illustrator for many children’s books until he also turned his skills and imagination into creating his own stories.
He read his best seller “The Poppy” to us. It was wonderful to hear the background of the story and all about his time living in France.
We were then given some tips on how to improve our own stories and illustrations. It was a wonderful opportunity for us all to learn more about literature and develop our own skills.
