Book Week at Chandlings!

Book Week at Chandlings was buzzing with activity. We were lucky to be visited by three amazing authors who all gave us wonderful presentations about their lives as authors. It was very informative and I think most of us came away feeling we all could have a go at writing a book!

Katherine Rundell spoke enthusiastically to the Prep children about her time spent abroad mainly in Africa and how this gave her the ideas for many of the storylines in her books, ‘The Wolf Wilder’, ‘Explorer’ and ‘The Christmas Wish’.

Helen Cooper entertained our Pre-Prep children with exerts from her new book 'The Hippo at the End of the Hall'. 

Matt Brown gave an engaging humorous talk to our Prep children about the charaters in his books and what they get up to! The children were activily engaged and throughly enjoyed the event.
