A Piglet Visits

We had a very interesting visitor into our classroom this morning. Lilly's mum Annette and Roger brought their pet piglet Peppa to visit us. They picked Peppa up from the wild when it was very small. It likes to tear up newspaper and have its tummy scratched.

Duffy Assembly

On Friday we had a visit from Kyle Mewburn an author who has written lots of books for children. He has written Duck is Stuck, Kiss Kiss Yuck Yuck, Blue Gnu just to name a few. He has also written two popular chapter book series Dinosaur Rescue and Dragon Knight. He told us about he became a writer after he spent lots of time doing boring jobs. He also shared with us about how he got some of his ideas for his stories.

He wrote lots of books that he sent to the publishers and they didn't like his story.
Showing us on of his picture books - Duck is Stuck.
Here he is showing two dinosaur rescue books - we had to spot the difference in the picture. One had a picture of a bare bottom and the other had censored written over the bare bottom because in one country they are not allowed this type of picture.
