Term 3 …. BOOK SAFARI WORLD SAFARI….

 

Last week we were lucky enough to have two guest speakers – James Roy and Susy Boyer.

Susy presented her work to Prep – Year 2 students explaining her job illustrating picture books. We now have a copy of The Gobbling Tree– thank you!

James Roy presented to Year 4 and Yr 7 students. Additionally he presented a separate writing workshop for each Year 6 class. Check out his website and try out the magnetic poetry.

James’ latest book – Edsel Grizzler , The Voyage to Verdada is also now in our library.  You can also view a trailer (UTube) for this novel.  Check it out.

Great entertainment – with useful tips to improve your writing skills!

Thanks James.
