An Inspiring Author’s Visit

This morning, author Ben Harris paid an inspiring visit to our Infants and Juniors. Our youngest pupils were enthralled with his picture book The Christmas Swallow, a beautiful retelling of the Christmas story from the viewpoint of a swallow. And our pupils in Year 5 and 6 put their knowledge of classical languages to the test  asMr Harris read from his Latin translation of Julia Donaldson’s The Gruffalo. It was lovely to see the pupils so engaged and asking lots of questions, as Mr Harris took advantage of the opportunity to speak to them in a very relatable way about the use of perspective in storytelling, Latin conjugation, and much more. Copies of both of his books can be found on most online booksellers’ websites.
