What a lovely morning at Smitham on the 10th May!               

The author Ross Montgomery had a Zoom session with Nursery and Reception plus a Zoom session with KS2. While Chitra Soundar had a zoom session with KS1 and Year 3. Everybody enjoyed hearing about how these authors gain their ideas for writing their wonderful books. What amazing imaginations they all have! 

Here is what the children at Smitham had to say about the visits:

Listening to an author encourages you to read more.

It is good to get to know other authors.

Hearing from authors helps you with your writing and encourages you to write more.

It has made us try different books and stop reading David Walliams all the time.

It is fun!

Listening to a great storyteller is really nice.

Hearing about how to write and publish a book encourages children in Smitham to write books. 

Book Fair July 2021

 What an exciting Virtual Book Fair we had! There was a great opportunity to buys books at fantastic prices, there are 1000s at only £2.50 including many top titles from children's books through to teen books.  There were many great non-fiction books and fiction books to keep your children busy during the Summer holidays. 

Many orders were placed- thank you very much!

The orders were delivered to school for free and in brightly coloured bags which the children loved. We earned a free book for every five £2.50 books purchased by ​our parents/carers. Thank you once again for all your orders! 

Here are the books ready to go!
