DASP Literacy Festival

DASP Literacy Festival
 
Year 2 was invited to Thomas Hardye School on 2nd July to meet Lucy Volpin, a local author and illustrator. Lucy spoke about how and why she became an author and illustrator and discussed how long it took to create a book from getting the idea in her head to having a book published. She then taught us step by step how to draw Crocodali - the main character in her book. Year 2 learnt a lot and came back to school inspired to write and draw!
DASP Literacy Festival Grand Finale
 
Four Year 3's pupils attended the grand finale day at Thomas Hardye School. It was filled with laughter and inspiring guest speakers on being an author and an illustrator. The message is to KEEP READING! It is the key to success in all areas of life. To end, the children got to practice their illustrations skills on the paper table cloth! A great day out!
