P1 visit to meet the Scottish Author Finalists

All pupils in Primary 1 went to the Beach Ballroom to meet 3 real authors.  These authors were this year’s finalists in the Scottish Book Trust’s competition for Scottish Author of the Year in the 3-7 year category.  Only children are allowed to vote for their favourite story.  The children had a lovely morning and all authors were very entertaining and spread their enthusiasm for being a writer.  The teacher’s even got some ideas for their writing lessons!

All P1’s received a copy of the books in her gifted P1 Book Bug Packs.

Anna from P3 also accompanied us on our outing as she came runner up in last year’s City wide competition to design a t-shirt for Library Bear.  She received a signed copy of all the author’s books, which were presented to her on the stage, in front of all the other schools.  We are very proud of her.  Well done Anna!
