Catherine Bruton “Visit” – 20/5/2021

On Thursday, the children had a very special virtual visitor. The very special visitor was the author of our reading assembly book – ‘No Ballet Shoes in Syria’

Her name is Catherine Bruton, and after contacting her to tell her how much we loved the book, she offered to hold a live Q&A session for our children.

Catherine was amazing! She read an extract from her book, told the children what inspires her to write and she answered all of our questions! She even said that Chloe’s question was the best question of 2021!

The children were very lucky (although slightly nervous!) to meet her.

Catherine also told the children her ‘Top Tips for writing’ which we will be using for our future story writing!
