Year 5 World Book Day meet an author

As part of our World Book Day celebrations,  both year 5 classes were visited by a local author – John Press.  He was very impressed with the depth of questions that the children asked him and, as a result of his visit, the children learnt a lot about writing books.  John is kindly making his book-  Return of the Purple Paw –  available on Kindle, free of charge, until Saturday lunchtime should your children like to read it. John has written a number of other books: Soul Boy (his latest) The Mysterious Case of the Mysterious Case. The Curse of the Sherbet Skull Scrambler.
