Chris Powling Visits

Author Chris Powling visits!

To close our Book Week at St. Mary’s, we were fortunate to have Chris Powling visit us. Like Denis Bond, Chris brought an incredible enthusiasm for reading which captivated the children he worked with. His overall message of ‘everyone is a writer’ was absorbed by the children throughout the school and they were motivated to go and write after meeting him. When meeting Year 6, he took great satisfaction in telling them the stories behind his most famous novels. A number of children were delighted to share their love of reading with him and he left our school with a list of books he should read as well!
