Maltby Book Festival Week

This week we have hosted our annual ‘Manor Book Festival’. In KS1 the children worked with local author Lisa Nicholson and illustrator Rachel Walton. Each class created their own short stories about a character that lived in a tree. Rachel came back later in the week to work with the children and help illustrate their stories. Rachel read her story ‘The Guzzel’ to the children in Foundation Stage.  In KS2, the children worked with award winning author and illustrator Steve Smallman. He shared some of his stories with each class; he then worked with the children to create some characters and write a class poem. Throughout the week the children had the opportunity to visit the book fair. This was a huge success, we made over £1000 so thank you to all parents/ carers for attending. We ran a competition for the children to design their perfect reading area. We chose a successful winner of the £10 reading voucher. Well done to all the other applicants.

Pupil voice:

“I bought a pack of books called ‘The unicorns of Blossom Wood’. Three cousins step into some footprints and it turned them into unicorns, there is a different world in Blossom Wood” Y3

 

“All the books have been really interesting; I enjoyed the author coming in because he read us a rhyming poem about a boy who only ate peas” Y4

 

“I have enjoyed looking at pictures of Earth and space in our book. The best part of the week has been art, we have drawn the solar system using chalk pastels” Y5.

 

“I loved it when the author came into my class. We created a poem about an elephant, he was in the jungle and blew away. He drew some detailed pictures for us to look at. I have enjoyed Manor Book Festival very much.”  Y6

 

“I liked picking a book with my mummy. It had a cake on it” Y1

 

“I liked the horse because he nearly ate The Gingerbread Man.” FS2

 

“I loved looking at the books at the book fair and drawing mermaids with Rachel.” (Y2)
