Year 1 & 2 Literacy Festival

Dorchester Schools Year 1 & 2 Literacy Festival
On Wednesday 18th October, our Year 1 & 2 pupils visited Thomas Hardye School to listen to the author Neal Layton. 
Neal is an award winning illustrator and author of children's books. He has illustrated more than 80 titles to date, working with authors such as Michael Rosen (ex Children's Laureate) and Cressida Cowell (How to Train your Dragon), and won several prizes including a Gold Award for 'That Rabbit belongs to Emily Brown'. He also writes his own books including the pop-up book' The Story of Everything' and the best selling 'Mammoth Academy Series'.
The children spent an enjoyable morning listening to Neal talk and listening to his stories being read out loud.
