We recently welcomed local author Saviour Pirotta to our school on his second visit as our school’s Reading Patron. In the morning, Saviour spent some time sharing with the children his inspiration for his books and answered the children’s questions, before reading extracts from his new book. In the afternoon, he worked with the children on a Guided Reading session, suggesting ways for the children to open a story for the BBC’s 500 words story writing competition. The KS2 pupils also enjoyed sharing their work with him. The best news was his announcement that his next book, ‘Annis & the Unicorn’, to be published in early 2018, will be dedicated to our school, after finding inspiration for the story after his last visit here.
