We were very lucky to be able to welcome three fabulous authors to our school this week for the Really Funny Book Tour.

Tom Nicoll, Barry Hutchison and Guy Bass talked to pupils from Years 2-6 about being an author and how to write funny stories. All three read an extract from their latest books, there was a question and answer session and some games, including two truths and one lie where pupils had to guess which author was telling a lie. Another game saw three pupils competing to see who could put the most pants on their head!

The authors aimed to inspire the children to put pen to paper without fear and to use their imaginations and humour. Their message was 'if it makes you laugh out loud when you are writing then it will probably make others laugh too'. All the authors signed books and the bookseller kindly donated three signed titles for our library.
