Author Tom Percival visits Infant School

On Wednesday afternoon Reception and Years 1 and 2 were visited by the author Tom Percival.
 
Tom has written many familiar children's books to include Herman's Holiday, The Spell Thief and his newest story, Ruby's Worry. 
 
Tom spoke to the children about writing stories and how to come up with new and exciting ideas. The children even helped him to make up a story using a suitcase full of unusual objects. 
 
Everyone loved Tom's demonstration of how he creates the illustrations for his books and many of the children have had a go at creating their own characters. 
 
We all had a fabulous afternoon and the children have learnt lots about writing and illustrating their own stories.
