Author Visit - FS/KS1

Today Foundation Stage and Years 1 and 2 had an exciting trip to St Hugh's College, Oxford to see the author and illustrator Suzanne Barton ( as part of the Bookfeast Literary Festival). She read us two of her stories and showed us how to draw a caterpillar and butterfly just like her characters. She allowed us to use our own creative ideas to make our own characters too. We were also shown her original art work for the stories which are collaged to add interest. 


Take a look below to see some of the photographs from our fantastic trip. The staff at the festival were extremely impressed by the children's manners and behaviour and commented on this to the staff.
