Today year 2 had an exciting zoom call from an author! Lizzie Ingram has recently wrote a children's book called 'The Little Wonky Pumpkin'. The story links to our concept of individuality. Year 2 were lucky enough to have her read them the story and talk about her writing experience. She told us how she wrote the book in 2 hours but it took her 9 months to edit it! We spoke about the importance of editing our work. We will be using what we learnt about being an author to write our own stories in class and sending them to Lizzie to read! She has even said she will send some prizes to children she is most impressed with!
We have put the link for the book on the Children's seesaw in case they would like to buy it and share the story with you at home :).
