Year 3 Jacqueline Wilson Virtual Visit

On Friday 12th November, Year 3 took part in a Puffin virtual visit with Jacqueline Wilson! We watched a live stream of her talking about her new book, ‘The Primrose Railway Children.’ She told us all about her inspiration and how resilient she needed to be to become an author. Her advice was to keep reading lots and try to write something every single day!

We also heard from illustrator Rachel Dean, who showed us the process of her drawing the main character. We had a go at drawing the characters too!

We are feeling very inspired in Year 3 so hopefully, one day, children will be reading books written by authors who came to Thorndown! Keep your eyes peeled!
