On Monday 28th January we were all very excited as we were going to be visited by a local author! Rachel Greaves has recently self-published a series of books about an Airdale Terrier called Ruffle and his adventures on a steam railway. She did a wonderful, interactive assembly for the children where she performed some of her exciting new stories using puppets and props.
The children were enthralled not only by the lovely stories but the fascinating props that Rachel has made to bring her stories to life.
Afterwards, the children were given the opportunity to ask questions about the stories and being an author. They were so engaged that we ran out of time but we are arranging another assembly date soon when Rachel will return for the next instalment! We're all looking forward to it!
