Tom McLaughlin Visit

On Monday 7th October we were incredibly lucky to have a visit in school from Tom Mclaughlin, an author who lives in Devon.  This visit was arranged by our librarian Kymble, in conjunction with the Appledore Book Festival.


The children in Years One, Two and Three enjoyed an assembly where Tom talked about his picture books, and how he creates them.  Our older children had an assembly with Tom where we learned about his inspiration, and his characters and illustrations.  Our reception children were lucky enough to have Tom read the class a story, before he was busily signing over 70 books for pupils and for our school library!
